Red Devil’s Relieved: Man Utd Star’s Heartfelt Message as Nightmare Ends

Donny van de Beek’s Heartfelt Goodbye to Manchester United: A Struggling Chapter Comes to an End

Donny van de Beek has penned a heartfelt goodbye message to Manchester United fans as he prepares to embark on a new chapter in his career. The Netherlands international’s spell at Old Trafford has come to an end, leaving supporters with mixed emotions.

The 27-year-old joined the Red Devils from Ajax in the summer of 2020 for £35 million plus £5 million in add-ons, but his time in Manchester has been a disappointment. Limited to just 34 Premier League starts across three seasons, Van de Beek’s performances were a shadow of his best, especially when comparing his form during Ajax’s Champions League campaign in 2019.

In January, he joined German side Eintracht Frankfurt on a six-month loan deal, but he struggled to find his rhythm, starting only four games for the club. Now, reports suggest he’s on his way to La Liga side Girona for a fee of £423,000 plus add-ons that could add up to £12.6 million.

A Message from Van de Beek

"I want to thank you all for your support throughout the years," Van de Beek wrote on Instagram. "From the moment we arrived at Manchester United, we felt extremely welcome and we are grateful for that. Special thanks to all the fans that made these years unforgettable."

Besides the football, Van de Beek and his family made Manchester a home, with their children born in the city. "Despite the results not being as we wanted, this chapter will always be dear to me and my family," he continued. "Good luck to everybody, we’ll meet again."

Reactions to Van de Beek’s Exit

Manchester United teammate Bruno Fernandes left a comment on Van de Beek’s post, saying: "You deserve the best."

Fans also paid tribute to the midfielder, expressing their gratitude for his service and sadness at how things didn’t pan out. One supporter wrote: "Sorry you didn’t work out Donny, very unfortunate, I wish Ole had given you more game time."

Another echoed the sentiments, saying: "This one hurts, we still believe in your talent and all you have to do is believe in yourself again."
