Dutch icon Gullit opens up and fires warning to Manchester United star Van De Beek
Ruud Gullit has sent a warning to Donny van de Beek after he made the move to the Premier League and Manchester United.
After helping Ajax become a top-level club once again, it was widely expected that Van de Beek would make the move to Real Madrid this summer as they reportedly had an agreement to sign the midfielder.
However, that move did not happen and United decided to swoop in and try to get the player signed, which they did, and for a bargain as he agreed to join the club for a £40 million fee.
But after seeing the Dutchman make that move to the premier League, legend Gullit has opened up and warned the little maestro ahead of his debut for the Red Devils, writing in De Telegraaf, he said: “I look forward to seeing Donny van de Beek at Manchester United.
“What immediately occurred to me is that he should be careful not to become a second Davy Klassen.
“Van de Beek is a younger copy of Davy in terms of play.
“Klaassen chose Everton, but the game of those two comes into its own most in an offensive squad, and therefore it should be easier for Donny at United than it was for Klaassen at Everton.”
It will be very interesting to see just how Van De Beek adapts to the quality of the premier League, but he has shown over the last few seasons that he has the ability to play at the highest level.
So he should do fine in the Premier League.
