’s nightmare season has just gotten worse after he was excluded from ’s Europa Conference League squad.

The midfielder joined the Bundesliga side on loan from in January, and they have the option to sign permanently for £10million.

After three-and-a-half disastrous years at Old Trafford, , but so far the nightmare has just continued.

Van de Beek struggled in his first three appearances for Frankfurt and was even hauled off at half-time of their win over Mainz after completing just five passes in that time.

The Dutchman was left on the bench for their most recent clash against Koln and may well struggle for game time going forward after he was not named in Frankfurt’s squad Conference League squad.

As per UEFA rules, clubs are only allowed to make three changes to their 25-man squad ahead of the knockout stages, with Frankfurt choosing to register January signings Sasa Kalajdzic and Hugo Ekitiké, as well as the previously unselected Philipp Max.

This has left no room for Van de Beek, with the chances of a permanent exit from United now looking far less likely for the 26-year-old.

Frankfurt, who are currently sixth in the Bundesliga, are set to play Belgian side Union Saint-Gilloise in the Conference League play-off round in February.

Following his loan exit, after being tipped for stardom.

He said: ‘From the moment I came here at Man United, he wasn’t the player I had at  because he was injured and so many times he was unavailable.

‘Then he struggled for a long time with recovering from that injury. So I think that is probably the main reason for why he wasn’t playing.

‘Then we decided on a loan in the summer and nothing came, then his opportunities were so few because also we made appointments and agreements with players and there was conflict in those positions, the competition was high.’
