Bayer Leverkusen agree deal to sign Manchester United defender

Timothy Fosu-Mensah is leaving Manchester United.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed last week that Timothy Fosu-Mensah would be allowed to discuss terms with other clubs in attempt to secure a transfer away from Manchester United.

The Netherlands international, who had loan spells at Crystal Palace and Fulham, is obviously not part of Solskjaer’s long-term plans so it’s time to sell and hope Fosu-Mensah can build a successful career elsewhere.

He would do a lot worse than Bayer Leverkusen!

The German outfit are currently 3rd in Bundesliga — four points adrift of league leaders and champions Bayern Munich.

According to Italian football journalist, Fabrizio Romano, the agreement has been reached between United and Leverkusen for Fosu-Mensah.

Romano adds that the defender’s former club, Ajax, were also interested but Fosu-Mensah will join Leverkusen.

Injuries got in the way of Fosu-Mensah’s development but it wouldn’t be wise to rule out his chances of Leverkusen. Hopefully he makes a positive difference there.

As well as not being able to break into the United team, Fosu-Mensah had a number of players ahead of him in the pecking order at Old Trafford so leaving the club is the right move for everybody involved.

We wish Fosu-Mensah all the best with Leverkusen.
