Van de Beeks Man United is fighting
Donny van de Beek signed for Man United during the delayed summer window, which set the Red Devils back by around £ 35million.
Van de Beek had spent his earlier years impressing at Ajax and at £ 35m he looked pretty decent for Man United.
Despite signing the midfielder under the supervision of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the Norwegian refused to allow the 24-year-old to play any regular time in 2020/21.
Van de Beek played 19 Premier League games, but only three of them played 90 minutes – and two of those games came right at the end of the season when United were left with nothing to play.
With the summer window now open, it wasn’t too surprising that van de Beek’s future at Old Trafford was being questioned. Arsenal would be linked to the midfielder in the window earlier.
Van de Beek decides to improve the physique
However, Van de Beek has since made a decision that could make him a key figure for Man United next season.
According to The Athletic, after a two-week vacation, Van de Beek has worked with both Man United’s medical team and strength and conditioning coaches to improve his physique ahead of his second season in England.
It is added that the midfielder returned to his home village and developed a lean muscle building plan and enlisted the help of a specialized elite training center in Amsterdam, where he followed a personalized nutrition plan and weight-based training sessions.

Of course, only time will tell if Van de Beek’s decision to improve his physique is paying off at Man United, but it seems like a step in the right direction for the Dutchman.
