Donny van de Beek loan negotiations hit snag as Man United hit with revenue problem



| Last Updated:


Donny van de Beek’s loan deal to German club Eintracht Frankfurt has hit a snag during negotiations, according to reports.

Donny van de Beek is set for a loan move away from Manchester United in January after he failed to secure a permanent move to La Liga last summer.

Erik ten Hag deemed the Dutch midfielder surplus to requirements quite quickly into his tenure at Old Trafford, but the player, who is keen to leave the club this window, has so far failed to find a path out.

Negotiations between United and Bundesliga outfit Eintracht Frankfurt are well underway, but there has been a sticking point in negotiations.

This is according to German transfer expert Christian Falk, who claims that although talks are “hot” between the two clubs, Frankfurt have stumbled into a problem – they cannot afford Van de Beek’s wages of around £6 million.

This comes at a time when United are in desperate need of cash after they dropped out of all European competition, finishing bottom of their Champions League group.

United expected the club to advance to at least the quarter-finals of the competition, and after now crashing out completely, they are down £28 million of expected revenue, which had changed their budgeting constraints.

Having initially been willing to sell players but only if it does not harm Ten Hag’s team, the club are likely to need to be much more forceful in generating revenue through player sales and will likely not want to cover the majority of Van de Beek’s wages if he is not at Old Trafford for the remainder of the season.
