Manchester United decided against allowing Donny van de Beek to go out on loan in January.
The Dutch international arrived at United from Ajax in the summer.
Nevertheless, he’s struggled to get regular playing time, even with the recent absence of Paul Pogba due to injury.
Van de Beek is very much used as a backup in the mind of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the moment.
And according to respected Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Solskjaer and United got an offer from an undisclosed club outside of England for van de Beek but turned it down.
The move would have been a short six month loan, but United rejected the deal, and wanted to keep hold of the player.
