Newcastle United have been reportedly offered the opportunity to sign a Manchester United midfielder.

Donny van de Beek has been tentatively linked with a January transfer to Newcastle.

With the Magpies sitting 19th in the Premier League standings, staring down the barrel of relegation at the moment, major reinforcements are needed at St James’s Park.

According to the Manchester Evening News, the Tyneside outfit have been offered the chance to take the Netherlands international off the Red Devils’ hands.

The former Ajax maestro has flopped at Old Trafford following a £35 million move in 2020.

Since then, Van de Beek has started only four Premier League outings – all of which were last season – and his prospects under Ralf Rangnick haven’t improved a great deal either.

According to the report, Borussia Dortmund have also been ‘sounded out’ as a potential destination.

Departure likely

A transfer to Newcastle isn’t certain, but a departure away from Manchester is very likely in some capacity.

Even club legend Gary Neville told the Dutch midfielder to quit the Theatre of Dreams in October, claiming via The Metro that: “I think he needs to go and play football somewhere.”

Question is, should Newcastle be that ‘somewhere?’

It remains to be seen whether Van de Beek is a bad Manchester United player or a bad Premier League player.

If the main men at St James’s Park determine that it’s more the latter, and he isn’t suited to English football, then taking him to the North East makes absolutely zero sense.

In general, however, Van de Beek is a very polished footballer and with the right club, under the right manager, he could prove as much again.
