Manchester United will be hoping to build on their draw against Liverpool when they face West Ham United on Saturday afternoon. 

The Red Devils have endured an inconsistent season so far but held rivals Liverpool to a goalless draw at Anfield on Sunday – a result that will be celebrated far more in Manchester than on Merseyside.

Ahead of the game, it appears that one of United’s players is currently abroad for a medical with another club.

As per 90min, midfielder Donny van de Beek is in Germany to undergo a medical ahead of a proposed move to Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt.

The Dutchman is expected to join Frankfurt on an initial loan, with the deal also set to include the option for the German side to sign him permanently for a fee of around £15 million.

Van de Beek is set to leave United on loan after a disastrous spell in Manchester

Van de Beek, 26, has endured a nightmare spell in Manchester since joining United from Ajax in 2020.

The midfielder arrived carrying huge expectations after impressing in Amsterdam, but he has struggled to ever establish himself as a regular in the first team at Old Trafford.

In total, Van de Beek has made just 62 appearances across all competitions for United, including just 21 minutes of football so far this term.

If frankfurt do sign the player permanently, it will mean that United have made a loss of around £25 million in three years, having paid £40 million to land the midfielder from Eredivisie giants Ajax.

While the move will not be finalised until the transfer window reopens in January, Frankfurt are said to be hopeful that the player will join up with the squad as soon as possible.

German football will soon enter a winter break, with Frankfurt’s first match of 2024 due to take place against RB Leipzig on January 13.
