Man Utd 22-year-old defender stalling on new three-year deal

By | December 2, 2020

Manchester United centre-back Timothy Fosu-Mensah is reportedly yet to decide whether to put pen on a new deal with Ole Gunnar Solskajer’s side.

The 22-year-old’s existing deal is set to expire next summer, however, the Netherlands international has allegedly been offered fresh terms by the Red Devils.

According to Football Insider, a new three-year contract has been placed on the table, although the versatile centre-back will not make a decision on his future until the start of January.

The report suggests that Fosu-Mensah, who has only started four games for the 20-times English champions, first wants to take a look at what other potential offers arrive.

The 22-year-old centre-back was reintroduced into the first team after the lockdown period and has featured on two occasions for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side during the 2020-21 season.

Fosu-Mensah, who will be free to discuss terms with other sides at the start of January, has played 29 games for the Red Devils since debuting in 2016.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are reportedly open to agreeing a part-exchange deal involving their out-of-favour defender Eric Bailly and Villarreal 23-year-old star Pau Torres.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been increasingly reliant on Swedish centre-back Victor Lindelof and their record signing Harry Maguire over the past 12 months, partly the pair to injury issues further down the pecking order.
