Solskjaer has previously hinted that the Dutchman could play on the left wing for United.

The Old Trafford chief also spoke very highly of Van de Beek's ability to play in multiple positions.

Solskjaer said: "He's got very high footballing intelligence and tactically he's gone through the Ajax system. Dutch football is tactical, he knows football, he's got his head screwed on.

"He's a different type of left-sided player compared to Dan James and Marcus Rashford but coming inside and finding good pockets why not, he can play loads of different positions, which sometimes is a strength for a player.

"I remember myself sometimes, right-wing, left-wing centre forward, No. 10, Donny is one the coach will always look to have in a squad."
