Donny van de Beek was reportedly not letting his latest Manchester United snub get him down.

The Dutchman joined the Red Devils in the summer but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is yet to start him in the Premier League.

Van de Beek didn’t even make it off the bench against Chelsea with Paul Pogba, Edinson Cavani, and Mason Greenwood all brought on ahead of him.

Many are wondering why United splashed out up to £40m to bring Van de Beek to Old Trafford from Ajax given his lack of action.

Though it seems the man himself is not letting himself get down in the dumps and took part in the warm down following the Chelsea draw.

The Times claim Van de Beek took part in a sprinting drill with the three other unused substitutes, though the Dutchman was quickest.

Van de Beek has made just two starts in all competitions for United, both in the Carabao Cup.

Indeed, since signing from Ajax on September 2, the 23-year-old has played more minutes for his country (253) than for his club (231).

Many have questioned Solskjaer’s use, or lack of use even, of Van de Beek with Netherlands hero Marco van Basten telling Ziggo this week: “Donny should not have gone to Manchester United.

"When you are a good player you want to play every week. It is really bad for a player like Donny to play only six or seven games this year. That is shocking for your match rhythm.

"I know he is earning loads and loads more than he used to. But as a top player you have to be critical and look at the chances of playing when you sign for a new club.

"Donny should have waited for better prospects and signed for another club."

Though Solskjaer explained: "Of course, it’s competition for places, it’s giving him time to settle in and adjust to his new teammates and a new league.

"He’s absolutely a top footballer, a top personality, so humble and hard working but also eager to play more. As I’ve said so many times, you’ll see him throughout the season.

“It’s going to be a long, long season and he’s impressed me."
