Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has told Donny van de Beek what he must do to improve his chances of playing at Manchester United. It comes amid a tough campaign for the 23-year-old.

Van de Beek joined United in the summer transfer window for a fee of £40m from Ajax.

The arrival of the midfielder was mooted as a clever purchase, with Real Madrid circling after his performances in the Champions League.

But the Dutchman has struggled in the Premier League and has been left frustrated with the season .

In total, Van de Beek has accumulated 315 minutes of action in the top-tier – compared to 413 for his country.

It has led to talk that the Netherlands international could leave just a season into his United career, a situation Solskjaer wants to avoid.

And the Red Devils coach has told Van de Beek what he must do – score more goals.

“Donny scored some absolute crackers when we were all back in training on Friday” said Solskjaer.

“He scored some absolute top, top goals that I’d be really proud of myself and it’s done him the world of good, going away and scoring a goal for Holland.

“We hope we can see a lot of that for the next eight weeks of the season and then to kick on again.

“Sometimes it’s natural that if you don’t play and have injuries you lose a little bit of confidence and spark.

“Then you go away with your national team and feel good. I can talk from my own experience, sometimes I went back to play for Norway and you get the feel about yourself better.”
