Manchester United have enjoyed a season where the team has shown considerable progress under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. At this point of time, they sit at second in the Premier League and are in the quarter-finals of the Europa League, where they will face Granada.
But clearly, there is still a lot of room for improvement at the club. Last night’s 3-1 defeat at the hands of Leicester City was proof of that as they crashed out of the FA Cup.
As a result, they are expected to strengthen further in the summer transfer window as they aim to return to the top of English football once again. But that could prove to be tricky in the middle of a global pandemic.
According to 90 Min, the Red Devils are open to the idea of parting ways with Donny van de Beek and including him as part of any deal for some of their summer transfer targets. And with the club linked with a number of Borussia Dortmund players, he could be offered in a swap deal to the Bundesliga giants.

Van de Beek has failed to make his mark at Manchester United
When Manchester United managed to sign Van de Beek, it was seen as a massive coup on their part. The Dutch midfielder came with a huge reputation from his time at Ajax and was expected to make his mark at Old Trafford quickly. That has not happened yet.
In 27 appearances, he has managed just a goal and an assist, and has failed to break into Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first-team plans, spending the majority of his time at Old Trafford on the bench behind the likes of Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba in the pecking order.
On the other hand, the Red Devils have been linked with the likes of Erling Haaland, Jadon Sancho and Manuel Akanji, all of whom could prove to be brilliant signings for them.
