Timothy Fosu-Mensah’s transfer to Bayer Leverkusen was confirmed today.
Shortly after the news broke a video emerged of Paul Pogba and Eric Bailly saying goodbye to their Manchester United team-mate.
“My brother from another mother,” Pogba says before asking: “Who is going to make me laugh? Him, this guy [Eric Bailly]?” *laughs*
Bailly is busy hugging Fosu-Mensah in the background before the Dutch defender departs for pastures new.

“I’m happy for him bro,” Pogba tells Bailly at the end.
The Bundesliga offers Fosu-Mensah a great opportunity to embark on a new chapter of his career.
He fell far down the pecking order at United and couldn’t muscle up any competition at right-back for Aaron Wan-Bissaka, but that’s not to say fans wouldn’t want to see him go on and do well for himself.
Not just the fans, but clearly his former team-mates at United want to see Fosu-Mensah pull up threes in Germany!
