Photo: Fosu-Mensah set for new chapter at Bayer Leverkusen

Timothy Fosu-Mensah left Manchester United for Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen last week.

The Red Devils got £1.75m for the defender’s signature — six years after the Netherlands international left the Ajax youth set-up. He went onto play 30 times in all competitions for United’s first-team, with just nine of those coming under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

An anterior cruciate ligament injury kept him out for much of the 2019/20 campaign and he struggled to leave a mark on the team. It was clear this season, with Fosu-Mensah fit and rarely playing games, that he was not part of Solskjaer’s plans.

But the defender who can also play a holding role in midfield has not appeared since the 3-2 loss at RB Leipzig on December 8. United team-mates Paul Pogba and Eric Bailly made sure to give him an emotional send off last week, too.

He joins Leverkusen after signing a deal until 2024 and has just uploaded a picture of him holding their shirt via Instagram.

This is a fresh beginning for Fosu-Mensah and SN wishes him all the best.

Let’s hope he does better in Germany than he did on loan spells with Crystal Palace and Fulham.
