Manchester United are closing in on completing a deal for their first sale of the upcoming January transfer window.
The Reds have confirmed that they are not actively looking to add to their squad during the mid-season window, with football director John Murtough stating that he does not expect a ‘particularly busy’ window.
However, now with the club out of two cup competitions, they could be looking to sanction sales from Erik ten Hag’s current squad with one eye on generating funds for the upcoming summer window.
Donny van de Beek looks to be one of those players. The Dutch midfielder has made just two appearances so far this term, with both of those coming from the substitute bench.
The 26-year-old is closing in on a move to German club Eintracht Frankfurt, and Sky Sports have reported that he has now completed his medical.
The move will be on a loan deal until the end of the season, and then the Bundesliga club will have an option to buy for £12.8 million, says Fabrizio Romano.
Markus Krösche, director at Frankfurt, has expressed his confidence in completing the move in the upcoming window and what the United midfielder could bring to his side.
“I am very confident that Donny will be with us in the next six months,” said Krösche.
He added: “We need experience, we are a very young team. Donny can definitely help us with that.”
Eintracht Frankfurt are sixth-place in the Bundesliga after 16 games and are three points behind Borussia Dortmund in fifth.
