La Liga Leaders In The Race For Donny van de Beek


Topping the table in La Liga, Girona are reportedly interested in signing Donny van de Beek on loan from Manchester United during the January transfer window.

It has been suggested, though, that Bundesliga club Eintracht Frankfurt are currently leading the race for the Dutchman ahead of a move in early 2024.

Frankfurt, under the management of Dino Toppmoller, are advancing in negotiations over the potential arrival of the 26-year-old central midfielder.

The Ajax academy graduate began his professional career with Ajax and was a key man as the Amsterdam club reached the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League in 2019 and final of the UEFA Europa League in 2017.

He moved from Ajax to Manchester United in the summer of 2020 but has struggled for any regular or consistent first-team football throughout his time at Old Trafford, making just 62 appearances across all competitions since his arrival.

He spent the second-half of the 2021/22 campaign on loan at Premier League rivals Everton but only managed seven appearances in that stint with The Toffees.

The 2022 UEFA Europa League winners Frankfurt are looking to bolster their squad as they seek to build upon a 5-1 thrashing of Bayern Munich at the weekend as they sit seventh in the Bundesliga table.

Girona, on the other hand, are mounting a serious and unexpected challenge for the Spanish title. The Catalans’ 4-2 defeat of Barcelona on Sunday leaves Michel’s side top-of-the-table as they near the winter break and the January window.

Donny van de Beek, who has been capped 19 times with three goals for the Netherlands, is seemingly closing in on a move to Germany where he will compete for a place in the team with the likes of Kristijan Jakic, Ellyes Skhiri, Makoto Hasebe, Eric Junior Dina Ebimbe and club captain Sebastian Rode.
