Donny van de Beek has sent a message to the fans claiming he is looking forward to making the most of the opportunity to play for the club and is also eager to play in front of United fans at Old Trafford.
The Dutchman was confirmed as the club’s first signing of the summer when he sealed a £40million move from Ajax early this month.
Discussing his first few weeks at Old Trafford, Van de Beek told MUTV: “Everyone has helped me a lot and wanted to make me feel at home and this is really good for me and it has given me the confidence to play.
“It’s a family club, I feel this already from the first seconds I have been here.
“Old Trafford is an amazing stadium. The nicest thing will be when the fans are there too and I cannot wait to play for the first time in front of them.
“I hope to see them soon in the stadium because for our team they will give us a lot of power when we can have them with us.
“I watched United a lot [when I was younger]. Because a lot of Dutch players have played here and this was nice to watch if you’re a young kid and you see the Dutch players there.
“Daley, Edwin, Robin van Persie… you see them. They won a lot of titles and United always played nice football, which was always good to see.”
Asked how he feels to be part of Solskjaer’s young and talented squad at Old Trafford, Van de Beek added: “I cannot wait to play many games with them.”
