Journalist Fabrizio Romano has taken to Twitter to provide an update on reported Wolves target Donny van de Beek.
The Dutch midfielder continues to be talked about, following his struggles for minutes with Manchester United.
It was recently reported that Wolves were interested in bringing him to Molineux.
The Daily Mail claimed Wolves and Everton have both held talks over a possible loan move for the player.
Wolves are currently light on midfield options, after letting Morgan Gibbs-White depart for Sheffield United on loan in the summer.
According to Romano, van de Beek will leave Old Trafford barring a complete turnaround.
He said: “Donny van de Beek situation is so clear. He loves the club and he’s still super professional in training, doing his best for Man Utd – but if the situation remains the same, he will leave Manchester United in January.”
So far this term, van de Beek has made just five appearances, for a total of 154 minutes.
United fans cheered sarcastically during the recent Manchester Derby when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer brought him on to replace Fred with around 10 minutes to go.
A lot of them do not understand why the Brazilian is a constant pick over van de Beek.
Wolves should continue to monitor van de Beek situation
It seems fairly likely that van de Beek will be leaving Old Trafford in a couple of months.
It is bizarre how little he has featured, especially given all the criticism that has been levelled at Fred and Scott McTominay.
He surely needs a change of environment, and it looks like he’ll agitate for an exit barring a complete change of heart from Solskjaer.
Really, Wolves should be focusing their efforts on Renato Sanches.
He’d be a brilliant addition, but should Wolves fail again to land the 24-year-old, then van de Beek might not be a bad alternative target.
He’ll be looking to prove himself, and show why he was one of the hottest attacking midfield prospects in Europe just two years ago.
