Deal close – £20,000-a-week player has agreed terms to secure Man Utd exit

Timothy Fosu-Mens

If reports in the media are anything to go by then Timothy Fosu-Mensah is close to leaving Manchester United for German side Bayer Leverkusen.

Fabrizio Romano, who works for The Guardian, has recently revealed that the 23-year-old has agreed terms with the Bundesliga club and the deal could be completed soon.

Transfer: Man Utd backed to secure signing of “top” £216,000-a-week star

The renowned Italian journalist has also claimed that the Red Devils have reached an agreement with Leverkusen to secure the exit of the Dutch defender.

Fosu-Mensah has been with Man Utd since 2014 but he has mainly been a bench warmer for the first team. In all competitions, he has only managed to play 30 games for the Old Trafford outfit and it is time for him to leave to play regular first team football.

This season, the £20,000-a-week player (The Sun) started the opening Premier League fixture against Crystal Palace that we lost 3-1. After that, he has not managed to make even a single appearance in the league.

On the other hand, he only managed to feature for 27 minutes in 2 Champions League appearances this term.

Therefore, to play week in week out, the right back must leave Old Trafford and a move to Bayer Leverkusen could be good for his future.

It must be remembered that in the summer, Solskjaer opted to allow Portuguese fullback Diogo Dalot to leave on loan for AC Milan. Now, with Fosu-Mensah departing on the verge of exit as well, Man Utd would seriously lack depth in the right back role.

Williams, Tuanzebe and Lindelof have at times played in the RB position to cover for Aaron Wan-Bissaka but that is not their natural positions. Therefore, United should look to reinforce the area in the winter transfer window.
