Donny van de Beek set for Eintracht Frankfurt medical

Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek will undergo his medical at Eintracht Frankfurt this week, with the deal expected to be finalised by Wednesday, according to Florian Plettenberg. 

The 26-year-old is to take a salary deduction whilst Manchester United will cover most of the rest of his salary, this means Frankfurt are to pay only around €2m for his services until June, according to Sky Germany. This means the salary structure at the club is not disrupted. 

As reported by GGFN earlier this month, the loan move may include an option to buy clause worth around €15m, though this is not mandatory. 

Head coach Dino Toppmöller told DAZN: “Everyone who knows a bit about football is aware that he is an outstandingly good footballer.“

With the Africa Cup of Nations on the horizon, Frankfurt are expected to lose Ellyes Skhiri and Farès Chaïbi in the midfield positions. Van de Beek will be able to provide cover for these while they are away, as he can fill all midfield positions from attacking to defensive. Once they return from AFCON, van de Beek will be a good rotation option as Frankfurt push for European football.
