Netherlands boss Frank de Boer has given an insight on Van de Beek’s ‘frustrating’ situation at Manchester United.

Donny van de Beek is not happy at Manchester United but he’s not worried about his future at the club, according to Frank de Boer.

The Dutchman has been unable to nail down a regular spot under Ole Solskjaer since he joined the Red Devils last summer.

It has been claimed Van De Beek could be seeking an exit from United due to the lack of minutes.

However, but De Boer insists he still believes he can be a success in England.

“I spoke to Ajax and they said there’s no truth in it at all. He didn’t ask to speak to them,” the Netherlands head coach told talkSPORT.

“He’s just focusing on his recovery on his ankle, and it’s not true that he asked Man Utd to leave.

“His agent also told me that of course he’s not happy that he’s not playing. He’s only had two starts under Solskjaer and that’s not what he hoped for when he joined Man Utd.

“He’s not worried, of course he wants to play every game. But he’s not worried that he can’t succeed.

“He has to have a review after this year, asking where do I stand? Do I have a possibility to succeed here or not? Otherwise, I have to make a move.

“We will see where he’s heading next year, maybe he stays at Man Utd or maybe another club is interesting for him.

“But he’s not panicking at all, he told the manager he’s so happy at Man Utd because the club is one of the best in terms of how they treat him, he feels loved.”

Van de Beek established himself as one of the top young midfielders in Europe during his time at Ajax but has so far been unable to live up to the same high standards with United.

The 23-year-old has struggled to impose himself amid strong competition for places at Old Trafford, with 11 of his 13 Premier League outings to date coming from the bench.
