PATRICE EVRA claims Manchester United DON’T need new £40 million summers signing Donny van de Beek.
But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists the midfielder will get his chance despite being left on the bench for Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Chelsea.
Patrice Evra claims Man Utd don’t need Donny van de Beek after he was left on the bench against Chelsea.
Van de Beek was snapped up from Ajax during the transfer window after shinning in both the Eredivisie and Champions League.
United fans were left drooling at the prospect of a midfield three also involving Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes.But Van de Beek is yet to start in the Premier League under Solskjaer.
And he has just 60 minutes of top-flight football under his belt as a result.
Van de Beek was seen fuming on United’s bench as Solskjaer decided to leave him as an unused sub.
And Red Devils legend Evra has questioned why United splashed the cash on Van de Beek if they have no intention of using him.
Evra told Sky Sports: “We’re talking about Van de Beek. Nothing against the kid, but why have we bought him?
“He’s watching the game from the stand every game. We don’t need him, that’s the truth.”
