Since joining Man Utd from Ajax last summer, the 24-year-old Dutchman has failed to find regular playing time, appearing only 19 times in the Premier League (four starts) in his first season and logging only five minutes of top-flight action this season.
Van van Beek’s agent, Guido Albers, said just last month that Man Utd refused to allow his client’s summer exit despite interest from Italy, Germany, and England because the club “promised” him game time for the next season.
Ince has weighed in on the topic, accusing Solskjaer of “blatantly lying” to Van de Beek about playing time, saying on the Kelly and Wrighty Show:
“If I’m going to buy a player, a top player from Ajax, the first thing I’m going to say is, ‘Am I going to play? Where do you see me fitting in, within the system, within the team?’
“As a manager, you have two choices – you can either tell the truth or not tell the truth. From what I’m seeing for the last year and a half, he’s not told Donny the truth, he hasn’t had any game time. He’s got £35 million sitting on the bench.
“I can hold my hands up if I’m on the bench and the team are winning and playing well. You can’t tell me that Fred and [Scott] McTominay are playing well week in and week out, and even [Paul] Pogba because they’re not.
“But he seems to play them all the time, and I’m sitting there watching them play, I would be livid.
“He’s been professional, he’s done everything by the book. Ole’s come out saying he’s in my plans, obviously he’s just blatantly lying, he has to move in January for the good of his career.”
