According to Neville, there is a chance Solskjaer did not sanction the transfer of Van de Beek to Man United and as such believes it is time for the Netherlands international to leave the club during the next transfer window.

"Why’s Donny van de Beek not being given a chance? There’s something about that. He’s not been given a chance for 18 months so you’ve got to come to the conclusion that Ole didn’t sign him or he doesn’t fancy him," Neville said as quoted by Metro UK.
