Manchester United title winner Dimitar Berbatov believes management are ready to sell Donny van de Beek.
The central midfielder was handed a rare start for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side in Tuesday evening's Champions League opener at Young Boys but was hauled off at half time.
Berbatov told Betfair: "United midfielder Donny van de Beek is running out of time to save his United career. He started against Young Boys but was substituted at half-time.
"This has been the story of his time at the club. If he plays, he's brought off. If he comes on, he gets 10 minutes. He never gets the chance to settle and show what he can do.
"It's just not working out for Van de Beek. It's a pity because United paid big money for him. But this is what happens when you spend money just to satisfy your fans.
"I still hope he gets a proper chance but it is going to be very difficult for him and the club may decide to cut their losses, if they can."
