Manchester United star Donny van de Beek has made a decision over his future in the transfer window.

It comes amid reported interest in his services from Arsenal, as well as clubs from further afield such as Inter Milan.

The Dutchman has had a tough first campaign in English football after signing from Ajax in the summer of 2020 for around £40m.

Despite his hefty price-tag, many heralded the transfer as a positive one for United.

Van de Beek had plenty of plaudits and was known for his ability on the ball, as well as his work rate off it, but instead he spent more time on the bench than anywhere else.

The 24-year-old completed just three 90 minute matches in the Premier League last season.

It has led to murmurs that the Netherlands international will look to leave United this summer in a bid to rescue his career.

Arsenal emerged as a shock option, while Inter Milan have also registered an interest.

But according to FCInterNews, Van de Beek has no intention of moving to Serie A and is keen on remaining in the Premier League.

Van de Beek's future has been the subject of much talk back in his native Holland, with many pundits believing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has not given him a fair chance.

Former Tottenham and Real Madrid midfielder Rafael van der Vaart has been a particularly vocal critic, insisting his countryman faces more misery unless something drastically changes this summer.

"He fit perfectly into the Ajax system, but he doesn't fit at Manchester United," he told ESPN, via Goal, earlier this month.

"If nobody leaves United [this summer], he will be lucky to get in the starting line-up.

"He is far too good to sit on the bench for two seasons. He needs minutes very quickly. He is still young, but time flies."

Van de Beek's year turned from bad to worse when injury ruled him out of Euro 2020 for the Netherlands.

“It just shows what a great life they have when they play at Ajax,' he told ZiggoSport.

“They all think very quickly that they are a big boy here and can make it in other countries, but in the Netherlands, there is a nice competition.

“In a team like Ajax you are really helped, especially in the No 10 position. Then you often see that they go abroad and it is a different story.”
