Real Sociedad are in talks with Manchester United over a move for midfielder Danny van de Beek.

The Spanish side are keen to sign the 26-year-old midfielder on loan for the coming season, with an option to make the new permanent for around 10 million euros, according to Spanish outlet Noticias de Gipuzkoa.

Van de Beek has been linked with a move away from United this summer after failing to make the expected impact at Old Trafford since joining the club from Ajax in 2020.

The Dutch midfielder’s current contract at Manchester United is set to expire in 2025.

Real Sociedad would see Van de Beek as a replacement for former Manchester City playmaker David Silva.

The Spanish World Cup winner announced his retirement earlier this week after a serious knee injury.
