Eintracht Frankfurt are unlikely to exercise the option to buy Donny van de Beek after signing him on loan from Manchester United in January.

Earlier this week the midfielder’s agent confirmed his client wants to leave the Red Devils and that the Premier League side are also keen on parting ways with him. He also said Van de Beek could prefer a move to Italy or Spain.

Inter Milan could now be an option for the Manchester United player, according to

Piero Ausilio, the Serie A side’s sporting director has followed the 27-year-old in the past, but wasn’t able to proceed due to the high cost. Recent claims from the Dutch press said he’s valued for less than €10m and is now a target for the Nerazzurri. relay this and have given their own take on Van de Beek. It’s explained that some intermediaries have the idea of using the Dutchman as a ‘pawn’ in helping Manchester United sign Inter’s Denzel Dumfries.

Erik ten Hag’s side could think of a direct swap deal, but this doesn’t suit the San Siro club. They want to sell the 28-year-old right-back for €20m, which is at least €10m more than Van de Beek’s valuation. In addition to this they aren’t looking for a new midfielder.

The report says Aaron Wan-Bissaka is the only Manchester United player that Inter will consider for an equal exchange. This could be difficult to carry out, considering the Red Devils’ aim to earn €25m from his sale, which is €5m more than Dumfries’ asking price.

In short, Manchester United can’t use Van de Beek as a ‘pawn’ to land Dumfries and the former isn’t of any interest to Inter. Therefore both the midfielder and his agent will have to look for other solutions in the next window.
