Man Utd star Donny van de Beek shows off incredible body transformation as he bulks up in bid to impress Solskjaer

DONNY VAN DE BEEK has undergone a radical change in nutrition and gym work over the summer to get in tip-top shape for Manchester United.

The Dutchman, 24, endured a desperately disappointing first season in England, starting only four Premier League games for his new club.

Disaster then struck when an injury caused him to miss Euro 2020 with Holland.

But rather than sit around and sulk, the midfielder determinedly set about improving his fortunes.

According to The Athletic, Van de Beek went to Amsterdam elite specialised training centre FysioConcept.

Together with them, he devised a personalised nutrition and diet plan.

And they also set up more weights-based gym exercises for him to better cope with the physicality of the Premier League.

The results have been stark, with the 24-year-old appearing visibly more muscular during Man Utd's pre-season matches.

Skipper Harry Maguire even hinted at it while commenting on a picture of his team-mate wearing the armband in pre-season.

In reference to Van de Beek's newly bustling bicep, Maguire wrote: "Don’t stretch that armband."

Frenkie de Jong, Wesley Sneijder and Rafael van der Vaart are among the other Dutch footballers to enlist the help of FysioConcept down the years.

Van de Beek has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford this summer.

But according to one Athletic source, he has 'a hunger and fire' to make the grade and prove himself at Old Trafford this season.
