Donny van de Beek feels loved at Old Trafford and is not panicking over his lack of game opportunities, according to Netherlands manager Ronald de Boer.
Reports emerged this week that Van de Beek is looking to leave Manchester United at the end of the campaign having failed to secure enough game time under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Since his £40m transfer from Ajax last year, Van de Beek has started only two Premier League matches and has been given just few chances to impress.
But De Boer, who has the same agent as Van de Beek, claims the midfielder is ‘not worried’ with his current situation at the club.
And the former Netherlands international has also revealed that Van de Beek told Solskjaer he has been happy with the way he has been treated since signing for United.
‘I spoke to Ajax and they said there’s no truth in it at all. He didn’t ask to speak to them,’ De Boer told talkSPORT 2. ‘He’s just focusing on his recovery on his ankle, and it’s not true that he asked Man United to leave.
‘His agent also told me that of course he’s not happy that he’s not playing. He’s only had two starts under Solskjaer and that’s not what he hoped for when he joined Man United.

‘He’s not worried, of course he wants to play every game. But he’s not worried that he can’t succeed.
‘He has to have a review after this year, asking where do I stand? Do I have a possibility to succeed here or not? Otherwise, I have to make a move.
‘We will see where he’s heading next year, maybe he stays at Man United or maybe another club is interesting for him.
‘But he’s not panicking at all, he told the manager he’s so happy at Man United because the club is one of the best in terms of how they treat him, he feels loved.’
