Solskjaer 1

Manchester United head coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has told attacking midfielder, Donny van de Beek that he plans to play him in the number 10 role for the Red Devils.

Van de Beek is on the brink of completing his move to Old Trafford after Man United and Ajax agreed a £40.3 million deal on Sunday.

The 23-year-old completed his medicals on Monday in Amsterdam, after he was given permission to leave the Dutch national team camp.

According to Algemeen Dagblad, Solskjaer had a conversation with Van de Beek last Friday, and during their talks, the Norwegian gaffer told the Netherlands international that he primarily plans to play him in the No.10 role.

Van de Beek scored 28 goals and registered 24 assists in 118 Eredivisie appearances for Ajax.

He also drew the interest of Tottenham Hotspur, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain in the past.
