  • Ralf Rangnick reluctant to allow midfielder to join Palace

  • Anthony Martial completes loan move to Sevilla


Crystal Palace and Valencia have approached Manchester United over taking Donny van de Beek on loan. Ralf Rangnick is reluctant to allow the midfielder to join Palace but the club will not give up on their attempts to sign him.

Any loan would not include an option to buy because United intend to keep Van de Beek next season – or at least give the manager the option of deciding the player’s future – even though he has not started a Premier League game during this campaign and got only four league starts in 2020-21. The Netherlands international wants to play more regularly and would welcome a move until May.

Van de Beek joined United from Ajax for an initial £34.7m in August 2020 but neither Ole Gunnar Solskjær, the manager when he signed, nor Rangnick, who is in interim charge, has entrusted him with regular appearances. The 24-year-old played in all three of Michael Carrick’s games as caretaker manager from late November, albeit as a late substitute in two of them.

Valencia are 10th in La Liga having lost two and drawn one of their past three league games, last weekend collapsing dramatically to be beaten 3-2 at Atlético Madrid.

Van de Beek’s clubmate Anthony Martial has completed his loan move to Sevilla for the rest of the season. The Spanish club’s deal does not include an option to buy the forward, who wanted a move in search of more game time.

Sevilla’s board have resolved not to sell the centre-back Diego Carlos amid interest from Newcastle, who have had two bids rejected.
