Donny Van De Beek Returns To Manchester United Training And Greets Ole Gunnar Solskjaer With A Kind Smile

On Monday, Donny van de Beek returned to Manchester United training for the first time in a year ahead of a crucial second season with the club.
Due to a groin injury, the midfielder missed the start of pre-season as well as United’s two friendlies against Derby County and QPR.
Van de Beek sustained the injury while preparing for the start of Euro 2020 with the Netherlands, and he was forced to withdraw from the competition.
Donny van de Beek was back in training for the debut time since injuring his groin in June, after missing the start of the pre-season. The injury added to a frustrating year for the 24-year-old, who barely got a chance to show himself in his first season at Old Trafford following a PS40 million move from Ajax, making only four Premier League appearances.
Yet he was in high spirits on his first day back at Carrington, where he was pictured laughing and conversing with United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
In a challenging first season, Van de Beek only made four Premier League starts for United. Solskjaer preferred a regular 4-2-3-1 configuration, featuring Scott McTominay and Fred together in a double holding midfield pivot 28 times.
Van van Beek made his reputation in European football as a left-sided midfielder for Ajax, but if stories of Solskjaer changing his formation are to be true, his prospects for the coming season should be raised.
With the signing of Jadon Sancho, ESPN reported last week that the coach is considering changing his team’s shape and giving them a more attacking approach.
The club is also close to completing a deal for Raphael Varane, a ball-playing centre half that the club has been missing for some time and who will be vital to their aspirations to play a midfield three.
