DONNY VAN DE BEEK has been urged to quit Manchester United this summer.

But the midfield flop should go back to Holland if he wants to save his career, says a former United star.

Van de Beek, 25, was rated as one of Europe’s top attacking midfielders when he swapped Ajax for United in 2020.

The Red Devils paid £40million for a player who netted 40 goals in his final three seasons with the Dutch giants.

But Van de Beek’s Old Trafford career has not gone to plan after a series of unfortunate injuries.

He has managed just two goals in 60 appearances, most of which have come from the bench.

And Van de Beek also endured a poor loan spell at Everton last season where he played just seven times.

Despite having former Ajax boss Erik ten Hag at the helm this term, he has still struggled to make an impression.

And former United star Paul Parker reckons Van de Beek must leave Old Trafford this summer.

He feels there will never be a chance for the playmaker to cement his spot in the first team.


But there are few takers for Van de Beek due to his £120,000-a-week wages.

And Parker believes his flagging career would be best served by returning to Holland with Ajax or another of the country’s top sides.

Parker told SoccerNews: “Even though it’s his old manager that sold him to Man United, I think Ten Hag knows it’s not going to work out for him.

“I think he was used the wrong way under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and he arrived at a bad time due to Covid.

“He might need to go back to Holland and revitalise his career. I don’t see him fitting into a Man United midfield now.”
