Gary Neville has pointed out that Donny van de Beek will need to find a new club. After not being given another chance against Leicester City.
The Holland midfielder was not included as a substitute in the 2-4 defeat at the King Power Stadium. With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer opting for Paul Pogba and Ney Manya Matic is a midfield duo.
Neville believes Van de Beck’s move to Old Trafford would not be desired by the Norwegian boss and should leave the team.
“Why didn’t Donny van de Beek get the chance?” Gary said. “There’s something about that. He hasn’t been given a chance for 18 months, so you have to conclude that Ole either doesn’t want to sign him or doesn’t like him.
“It’s not good for Donny van de Beek, so I think he should leave and play football somewhere.”

Another man who is yet to fulfil his potential in a United shirt is Jadon Sancho.
Sancho has only been at the club for a few months but he has failed to hit the ground running following his big-money move in the summer, with the Englishman yet to register either a goal or an assist.
Neville, though, believes that any criticism of Sancho is a “distraction” from the wider structural issues at United, such as the balance of the team in midfield and attack.
“Sancho at this moment, he’s a victim of the current performances of the team,” he said.
“You’d like a player like that to come into a settled unit and he’s just still finding his feet. I did think he played well in the last 20 minutes against Everton a couple of weeks ago. But he shouldn’t be the focus point of any criticism at this moment in time.
“Yes, of course you’re going to get criticism as a United player signed for that level of money. But again that would be a distraction. I think they have to get the balance of the team right.
