Inter Milan are reportedly prepared to offer Donny van de Beek a route away from Man Utd this month.
The Dutch international has endured a tough start to life at Old Trafford since joining from Ajax.
He’s spent much of his first few months on the bench and has failed to appear in United’s last four league matches.

According to sources in Italy (via The Independent), Inter chiefs are willing to take van de Beek on loan.
They are thought to be keen admirers of the 23-year-old and might try to sign him in January.
Van de Beek would offer more creativity in their midfield. Inter already have Christian Eriksen at their disposal, but the former Spurs player looks set to leave.
The report states that van de Beek is a big fan of the Italian giants and might be open to a move.
He’s featured ten times in the Premier League this season and has only completed one full match.
Van de Beek has mainly had to rely on cup competitions for his game time, including a full 90 minutes in the 4-1 Champions League victory over Istanbul Basaksehir.
Many pundits and fans are surprised at his lack of playing time. Dutch legend Ronald de Boer recently urged the midfielder to seek transfer talks, such is his dire situation at Old Trafford. Speaking to AD, he said: “The European Championship is coming, he will undoubtedly want to be there.
“Maybe it would be good for him to discuss with the club exactly what they want with him. If the view on playing time does not improve, he may have to declare that he should be rented or even sold.”
The Italian capital now looks like one potential destination for the player, should his turmoil at Man Utd fail to improve.
