Manchester United were knocked out of the Champions League after a 1-0 loss against Bayern Munich on Tuesday. 

Kingsley Coman’s second-half strike, assisted by Harry Kane, was enough to earn the Bundesliga champions victory and, in doing so, knock the Red Devils out of the competition.

Following FC Copenhagen’s 1-0 win over Galatasaray in the other Group A match, United failed to drop into the Europa League and therefore will no longer compete in Europe this term.

The upcoming January transfer window could be crucial for manager Erik ten Hag, who has endured a difficult season so far.

With the window not set to reopen for over a fortnight, it appears that United have received an offer for one of their fringe players.

As per 90min, German club Eintracht Frankfurt have made an early offer to sign United midfielder Donny van de Beek.

The Dutchman joined Man United from Eredivisie giants Ajax back in 2020 but has since endured a nightmare spell in Manchester.

Van de Beek is a target for German side Eintracht Frankfurt

In total, the 26-year-old has made just 62 appearances for his current club across all competitions, and he has therefore been heavily linked with a move away from Old Trafford.

This season the Netherlands international has played just 21 minutes of football, including only two minutes in the Premier League.

Many people had speculated that the arrival of Ten Hag in the summer of 2022 would spark a revival of Van de Beek’s United career as the pair had worked together in Amsterdam, but he has continued to struggle for opportunities.

The report claims that Frankfurt have emerged as contenders to sign Van de Beek and end his Old Trafford nightmare, with the Bundesliga outfit hoping to sign him on loan.

During the recent summer transfer window, Spanish side Real Sociedad came close to signing Van de Beek on loan, but the move never materialised.

It is claimed, though, that the La Liga side remain interested in signing the midfielder.
