Donny van de Beek’s agent is working hard on his client’s exit ahead of the January transfer window from Manchester United.
The midfielder has had a torrid time since signing for the Red Devils last summer from Ajax for around £40m.
At that price, many heralded the transfer as a fine deal for United after a string of brilliant performances in the Champions League.
But a slow start to life at Old Trafford saw him fall down the pecking order and he has never truly recovered, largely on the sidelines.
The 24-year-old completed just three Premier League matches last season and it has been a similar story this year.
The latest incident saw Van de Beek despondent after being told he would not get on against Villarreal, with Jesse Lingard and Fred preferred from the bench.
That appeared to be the final straw for the Dutchman and his future is now under question with an exit on the cards.
According to CalcioMercato, via Sport Witness, his agent is now working hard to secure a transfer in January for his client.
AC Milan are reported to be an interested party but whether United would be willing to negotiate remains to be seen.
Despite barely handing Van de Beek a chance, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains a big fan of the player and wants to see more of him this season.

After spending nearly £40m, finding a club to come close to paying a similar fee would be difficult and whether Milan would meet that total is unlikely.
The Serie A outfit have spent more than £35m just twice in their history and have never forked out over £40m.
Everton were reportedly interested in a loan deal over the summer but a move was blocked by the Red Devils on deadline day.
Nevertheless, Van de Beek now appears to be hellbent on leaving United to salvage his career after being left out of the latest Netherlands squad.
