Donny van de Beek made a big-money move to Manchester United just a fortnight ago. Now, he’s been pictured arriving at Carrington for the first time.
The Red Devils fans had to wait to see this sight, due to Van de Beek’s international commitments. Now, they’re all over, with the Dutchman spending his last day in the Netherlands yesterday.
Now, preparation for his first season at Old Trafford begins. With just ten days before United’s first game, Van de Beek is going to have to get up to speed quickly.
Well, he’s now putting in the work with his new teammates, as he arrived at the Carrington training ground for the first time. Credit to the Manchester Evening News for the scoop, and @UtdReport for sharing the photo…
Check out the snap of Van de Beek arriving at the United training ground here:
The hard work starts now. Van de Beek is an excellent addition to this squad, though it’s probably going to take him some time to fully adapt and adjust.
We’ve made our best effort at trying to work Van de Beek into a team alongside both Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes. I can promise you it wasn’t easy, but in time, this is how I reckon Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will utilise him.
For the opener against Crystal Palace, I’d be surprised if Van de Beek starts. I guess it all comes down to how Pogba is feeling after contracting COVID-19, but I’ll imagine La Pioche cannot wait to get going.
I’m just excited to see how United get on this season. Solskjaer has given that dressing room a newfound belief and confidence. Now, it’s up to the players (and the board) to restore that faith.
If I’m being picky, a couple more signings would be ideal before the start of play, though that’s looking unlikely at this point. It’s worth noting we have until October to get players added to the squad, mind.
