In a significant development, Eintracht Frankfurt is set to secure the services of Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek on a loan deal, with intriguing details emerging about the financial aspects of the move.
According to information from BILD, Van de Beek has willingly sacrificed a significant portion of his salary to facilitate the loan move to Eintracht Frankfurt.
The latest reports suggest that the German club will only be responsible for approximately €1.5 million in wages for the Dutch midfielder, thanks to his cooperation in restructuring his salary terms.
The transfer talks have gained momentum in recent days, with various reports indicating a swift progression in negotiations.
Initially, there were speculations that Manchester United would cover 60% of Van de Beek’s wages during his loan spell in Germany.
Subsequent claims hinted that Frankfurt might not contribute anything towards the loan arrangement.
BILD now asserts that the deal is on the verge of completion, describing it as ‘perfect.’
Additionally, the agreement is expected to include a purchase option for just under €10 million, meeting Eintracht Frankfurt’s desired terms.
Notably, Manchester United will reportedly cover a substantial portion of Van de Beek’s €8 million annual salary during the loan period.
However, the Dutch midfielder has voluntarily reduced his earnings, ensuring that Frankfurt only needs to pay approximately €1.5 million until June 30th, 2024.
This adjustment allows Eintracht Frankfurt to adhere to their wage structure without any breaches.
A medical examination is scheduled for the beginning of the next week, underscoring Frankfurt’s determination to integrate Van de Beek into their squad by January 2nd, coinciding with their return from the winter break.
