Ajax chief Van der Sar: Man Utd staff confident Van de Beek will make it with them

Ajax football chief Edwin van der Sar says Manchester United officials are still confident about Donny van de Beek's future at the club.

The youngster signed from Ajax in the previous summer transfer window for £40.5million, but has yet to find his feet in Manchester.

“I do talk to a lot of people at the club," Van der Sar said of the former Ajax ace.

“[He has a] fantastic attitude, he does well in training.

“It [sealing a spot in the Manchester United midfield] is difficult.

“Pogba is coming back, Fernandes is very important, [Nemanja] Matic and McTominay, are also there.

“It's no shame at all, it's also a big club, isn't it?

“Of course, it's a large amount [Van de Beek's £40.5m transfer fee], but they are confident that he will get there."
