Donny van de Beek is excited to be part of a talented Manchester United attacking unit after his summer move from Ajax.

The 23-year-old Dutch midfielder impressed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in last weekend's pre-season friendly against Aston Villa and is hoping to make his Premier League debut for United against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Van de Beek, a product of the Ajax academy, has won 12 senior caps for the Netherlands and is United's biggest signing of the summer.

He will hope to emulate the success of Portugal midfielder Bruno Fernandes, who arrived at Old Trafford in January and helped the Red Devils finish third in the Premier League and reach the semi-finals of the Europa League and the FA Cup.

Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood finished the 2019-20 season in excellent goalscoring form, while record signing Paul Pogba returned to action in June as United ended the league campaign with a 14-game unbeaten run.

Van de Beek is full of admiration for his new team-mates an told Inside United: "I cannot wait to play many games with them.

"There are a lot of young players in the group, around my age, and this is a really big opportunity for me.

"It's always good to play with these kinds of players, you can learn from everybody. Everybody has their own qualities and you have to pick things up from them.

"I hope together we can make a really nice future for the club."

Van de Beek is 9.50 to score first against Crystal Palace on Saturday. United are 1.36 to win, Palace are 8.00, and the draw is 5.00.
