Van Persie issues warning over imminent new Man Utd arrival

Robin van Persie has warned Man Utd that Donny van de Beek could have to “mentally adjust” to his new surroundings ahead of his imminent arrival at Old Trafford.

It has been widely reported that the Dutchman has completed a medical ahead of a £40m move which is likely to be announced in the coming days.

Van Persie knows exactly what it takes to perform at Man Utd and the former striker is interested to see how his compatriot performs at “a beast of a club”.


MAILBOX: Van de Beek will allow positional change Man Utd star needs


“Donny van de Beek is 23 years old and that is a nice age to make a transfer to the Premier League,” Van Persie told .

“I was a bit younger when I went to Arsenal, and in the locker room, I was considered a player for the future. Winning the UEFA Cup with Feyenoord meant nothing. The Premier League is a completely different world.

“Donny will be brought in as a major purchase from Manchester United, but he will discover that those other 22 players have also been brought in as a ‘major purchase’. One had an even bigger transfer than the other.

“It means that he has to stand there right away and he has to mentally adjust to that. Because Manchester United is in every way a beast of a club.”

Van Persie added: “Physically I don’t foresee any problems for Donny. His walking actions are his biggest weapon.

“He is also able to play sixty games a year. Easy games just aren’t there anymore. Especially against Fulham or Crystal Palace, you have to play the most. At every duel, even at every throw, those opponents pound on you.

“He has the advantage that he has gained a lot of experience in the last two seasons in Europe.

“The year in which Ajax reached the semi-finals of the Champions League was his big breakthrough.”

Man Utd board have two reservations over potential key deal

Man Utd board have two reservations over potential key deal

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has his work cut out if he wants to convince the Man Utd board to sign RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano, according to a report.

Reports have claimed that the Red Devils plan to strengthen their central defence as a priority this summer. As such, they have targeted the powerful and skilful RB Leipzig defender.

The 21-year-old proved himself one of Europe’s outstanding defenders this season. He was a key man as Julian Nagelsmann’s side reached the Champions League semi-finals.



United’s chances of landing him appeared to be over last month when he signed a new deal with the Bundesliga side. That tied him to the club until 2023. More significantly, it upped his exit clause to €60m.

However, reports in Germany claim the new deal includes a release clause of €42m. That comes into affect at the end of the 2020/21 season.

As per , Solskjaer wants the deal done now after identifying Upamecano as Harry Maguire’s dream partner. As such, he is pushing Ed Woodward to sanction the €60m (£53.7m) transfer now.

However, the Daily Telegraph reports that the Man Utd board have two reservations over the deal.

Firstly, the report states Woodward is unsure about spending £53.7m now on a player available for £37.4m next summer.

Secondly, United’s board are concerned whether Upamecano can be relied on to start every week in the Premier League at such a young age,. That’s despite Solskjaer putting youth at the forefront of his Old Trafford rebuild.

Furthermore, United’s board want the club to offload their unwanted defenders before signing another. Solskjaer has a plethora of centre-halves at his disposal and the club needs to lighten the load.

That could mean the likes of Chris Smalling, Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones all leaving. There is also Leeds United interest in Axel Tuanzebe and that could also boost their coffers.
