Manchester United let Van de Beek go to Barcelona

Recently, speculation about Donny van de Beek's future has taken a surprising turn. Reportedly, Van de Beek's name is on Barcelona's radar. Van de Beek is believed to be leaving Manchester United this summer. He came to Old Trafford with high hopes last season, but his first season failed miserably. 

The former Ajax Amsterdam has only started four times under the guidance of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. He sat on the bench more, his career continued to decline.

Therefore, rumors of Van de Beek's departure strengthened. Now reportedly going to Barcelona, ​​how come?

There's Koeman

According to Sport, Van de Beek through his agent has offered himself to Barcelona. They saw an opportunity at Barca because of the presence of the coach, Ronald Koeman. Barca is currently in a fairly large debt. They can't make expensive transfers happen, only cheap transfers or even for free all at once.

Van de Beek should be the right candidate. MU can not sell it at a high price because there is no proof of performance. In addition, it is reported that Barca may make a player swap offer. This is where the name Philippe Coutinho is also mentioned.

Switch Coutinho?

According to Express, Barca opened the door to a player swap between Van de Beek and Coutinho. This gap will not be wasted Barca. Coutinho has had two chances at Camp Nou, both failed miserably. In his first season he played very badly, then on the second occasion last season Coutinho was injured for a long time.

Therefore, it is believed that Barca will release Coutinho this summer, at any cost. Now, there is an opportunity to exchange Coutinho with Van de Beek. Indeed Van de Beek's performance has not been proven, but at least he is still younger and Koeman already knows him very well.
