The midfield department of the Crystal Palace squad needs quality additions this winter.
The latest reports in England suggest that Crystal Palace are set to loan Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek.
He has been subject to interest from various Premier League clubs.
The 24-year-old has been with United since 2020, having signed for the club from Ajax for 39 million euros. His current deal expires in 2025.
In total, he has scored two goals and supplied two assists from 50 Manchester United matches.
He is considered to be one of the best midfielders in Netherlands. Van de Beek has also left his mark at the international stage after netting three goals in 19 senior appearances for the Netherlands national team.
Patrick Vieira wants to loan a new midfielder and Van de Beek is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. The report claims that Palace manager has extensively scouted Donny van de Beek and is considering a move for the midfielder.
Crystal Palace are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
There is no doubt that Donny van de Beek will take Crystal Palace’s midfield to a different level.
According to the report, “Crystal Palace are interested in signing Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek on loan until the end of the season. Talks between both parties are ongoing but the player is known to want regular game time, says BBC Sport. Van de Beek has not featured much since arriving from Ajax. The Dutchman, 24, who signed a five-year-deal at United is open to the move to Selhurst Park. Van De Beek has not started a Premier League game this season, making just eight appearances from the bench. Palace manager Patrick Vieira has made it known he would like to improve the squad and mentioned that in his pre-match press conference ahead of the 3-1 loss to Liverpool on Sunday. The Eagles are currently 13th in the Premier League with 24 points.”
