Rio Ferdinand makes exciting claim about Manchester United star


Manchester United failed to bring in a single player in the January transfer window despite being in the midst of a top-four race. The decision seems to have been influenced by the fact that the club are expected to sign a new permanent manager next summer. On the other hand, the Red Devils allowed several players like Donny van de Beek, Anthony Martial, Amad and others to leave as they were struggling for playing time at Old Trafford.

Van de Beek was highly rated when Manchester United signed him from Ajax in the summer of 2020. Things didn’t go to plan at Old Trafford. He failed to make an impact last season and has barely played this time around, spending most of his time sitting on the bench.

Van de Beek is already off to a strong start at Everton under manager Frank Lampard. And it looks like the Dutchman is making a good impression at the Merseyside club.

While speaking on Vibe With FIVE and as reported by Metro, Rio Ferdinand said:

“I spoke to a few people at the club and they said he went there and raised the standards, in terms of training.

‘[He’s a] big boy, first and foremost, but you can see. A lot of them say, ‘Wow, he’s so good, they must be amazing at Manchester United if he can’t come in’.”

Manchester United loanee makes a good impression at Everton

Lampard has already made positive comments about Van de Beek in the media after he arrived on loan and it looks like he’s settling in quite well at Everton.

This could potentially turn out to be a great move for Van de Beek. He didn’t have enough game time at Manchester United but could very well do it at Everton. On top of that, he will have the chance to work with one of the greatest midfielders in Premier League history in the form of Lampard.

Will he be able to make an impact at Manchester United when he returns at the end of the season? That remains to be seen. But for now, things are looking up for Van de Beek.
