Donny van de Beek Joins Girona From Manchester United


Girona have completed the signing of Dutch midfielder Donny van de Beek from Manchester United in an initial deal of €500k with add-ons of €4/5m.

The total transfer package is worth €10/15m as announced by Fabrizio Romano. The 27-year-old is ready for a new chapter as he enters La Liga from the Premier League. He will now hope for a fresh start in Spain following a torrid time at Manchester United.

Donny van de Beek

Van de Beek struggled for game time at United since Erik ten Hag took over the reins as United manager. He made only 7 Premier League appearances for the club in ten Hag’s first season and one last season before being loaned to Eintracht Frankfurt in Germany.

At the Bundesliga outfit, Van de Beek continued to struggle, making only 8 Bundesliga appearances for the club. He will hope to weather the struggles and breath life back into his career with Girona.

Confirming his exit from the club, he bid United fans farewell, appreciating the support throughout his spell with the club.

“Dear Manchester United family:.”. Today is an unforgettable day for me, as my journey at the club comes to an end. I want to thank you all for your support throughout the years.”

Donny van de Beek

Donny van de Beek is a professional football player born on April 18, 1997. He plays majorly as a midfielder. Differentiated by his vision, technical skills, and versatility, Van de Beek has made several youth-level appearances for the Netherlands while also making his mark in the national team.

His career began in domestic Dutch leagues with some sort of an impact, then moving to the Premier League with Manchester United.

Donny van de Beek Career

Donny van de Beek started his football career with Veensche Boys before making a transfer to the Ajax youth academy in 2008. As Donny became a senior player, he rose through the ranks to play for Ajax in 2015.

In 2020, Van de Beek made a move to Manchester United for £35 million. He had initially shown so much promise but somehow seemed to never get things going with any consistency in the first team and therefore did not have many opportunities in the last couple of seasons.

His playing time with Manchester United was marred by injuries. Because of less playing time, the midfielder was loaned out to Everton in 2022 and Frankfurt in 2024 before making a permanent move to Girona.

In total, he has won 4 trophies: the Eredivisie and KNVB Cup in the 2018/2019 season, the Johan Cruyff Shield in 2020, and the Carabao Cup with Manchester United in 2023.
