Timothy Fosu-Mensah is edging closer to an exit from Manchester United, according to new reports.
The Dutch midfielder-turned-defender joined United 2014 and became a first-team regular under Louis van Gaal. There were great hopes that Fosu-Mensah would continue to develop under José Mourinho but injuries took its toll on a very promising player.
The now 23-year-old still has his entire career ahead of him and looks set to join Bayer Leverkusen. Fosu-Mensah’s contract at United was set to expire last summer but the club decided to exercise their option to extend it a further year.
A free agent in the summer, Bayer Leverkusen are looking to get a cut-price deal for the Dutchman.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Leverkusen and United are in ‘advanced talks’ over a deal. There are ‘positive feelings’ over a deal. The optimism signals that the transfer is imminent.
According to the Manchester Evening News, Bayer Leverkusen will pay £1.5 million for Timothy Fosu-Mensah.
