 The former Ajax midfielder sealed a £35million move to Man Utd in the summer transfer window, joining Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba.

Donny van de Beek was an unused sub for United vs City

Former Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has said Donny van de Beek made the wrong choice in moving to Old Trafford.

United paid an initial £35million fee to bring Van de Beek to Old Trafford from Dutch giants Ajax in the summer, though he has flitted in and out of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team. Van de Beek was an unused substitute in United's 0-0 draw with City in the Manchester derby on Saturday.

Now Van Gaal, who has managed both United and Ajax, has given his verdict on the signing.

Speaking to Ziggo Sport he suggested Van de Beek should not have moved to United, knowing he had to compete with Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba.

He said: “I hope his time will come, but I don’t think he made a good choice. I said that right away.

“If you have Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes, what position should Van de Beek be in? He doesn’t have the qualities of Pogba and Fernandes. And now you see that Pogba often doesn’t start. Where should Van de Beek play then?

“I think you could have seen that beforehand. There are so many teams, which could have done better justice to him, also in the top. He is a boy with many qualities.”

Van de Beek was heavily linked with Real Madrid before making the move to United, though his move to the Premier League was endorsed by former United goalkeeper — and Ajax chief executive — Edwin van der Sar.

Solskjaer has defended his use of the 23-year-old but will continue to face questions over his selections after more dropped points in the Manchester derby.
