And so the Dutchman got to work. George Ilinykhina, Jacob Ondrejka Chidera Ejok, Soumila Koulibaly and Signe Lamins came to reinforce the national champions.
In addition, collaborations with Gerano Kirk and Mandela Keita continued. And on Tuesday, the old grand one put on his show again. To combat the anemia in defence, Owen Fendall was restricted. The Dutch left-back is on rent from Ajax for a year.
Old acquaintance Overmars

In any case, it is certain that Van de Beek will not be playing European football in the coming months. After all, player lists had to be received by Monday. Furthermore, he was overlooked in United’s European player list.
