Fabrizio Romano has offered some more details amid the imminent exit of Timothy Fosu-Mensah from Man United to Bayer Leverkusen. Fabrizio reports that the two teams still need to hammer out ‘some details’, but the Italian notes that the Dutch defender has already agreed on personal terms with the German giants.
Timothy is ready to be sold this month after rejecting the offer of a deal extension from Man United, with the side to cash in for whatever they can before he can leave for free in the summer.
Fosu-Mensah made his debut for Man United under compatriot Louis van Gaal during the 15/16 campaign but has just gone on to play 30 games for the Red Devils, starting only 12 of these games.
The Dutch defender is a real promising footballer though, as he’s showed with loan spells in the PL with Crystal Palace and Fulham. Bundesliga giants sit third in the table at this moment in time, snagging a player with Fosu-Mensah’s ability and promise for a minimal fee will be a real coup for Peter Bosz’s side.
It’s a shame that the Dutch defender just hasn’t had the opportunity to establish himself as an important first-team footballer for Man United after six-and-a-half-years at the club, due to different factors.
