Arsenal legend and father to Man Utd star girlfriend, Dennis Bergkamp has played a role in Donny van de Beek’s potential move to Crystal Palace.
Van de Beek is desperate to leave Manchester United this month, having been restricted to just 380 minutes of action this season without starting a Premier League match.
Bergkamp’s daughter Estelle is courting van de Beek, and the couple are expecting their first child next month.
Sky Sports says Bergkamp contacted former Arsenal teammate and Palace manager Patrick Vieira about signing the 24-year-old.
Both parties are locked in negotiations, with United demanding a loan fee and van de Beek’s wages paid in full.
Vieira is working hard to convince van de Beek that he will be guaranteed first-team football at Selhurst Park.
Valencia are also in talks for van de Beek but it is unlikely they will be able to cover his wages.
