The Red Devils are keen on competing with the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea for trophies this season and have added Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo to bolster their squad.
However, that has not quite worked out as planned as Manchester United are currently in 6th position on the Premier League table after taking up 14 points from their first eight league matches.
Coupled with that disappointing start, the Red Devils could now be rocked with reports that young midfielder Donny van de Beek could leave the club when the transfer window opens.
The 24-year-old Netherlands International, who joined Manchester United from Eredivisie side Ajax last year has been in and out of the first-team squad since he made the move.
The young central midfielder was fairly involved last season where he made 36 appearances in all competitions, scoring one goals and creating two assists in total.
But this season, Donny van de Beek has been used sparingly by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and has only made three appearances in all competitions so far.
It is believed that Donny van de Beek is disappointed with his lack of regular playing time and according to reports from The Sun, he now has a huge chance of leaving the club in January.
The reports further claimed that Donny van de Beek is thirsty for regular first-team football and he could quit Old Trafford to join another team when the transfer window opens in January.
That said, it remains to be seen where Donny van de Beek will be plying his trade next year, but it seems a move away from Manchester United is on the cards.
