Man United defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah has turned down a contract extension at the club amid growing interest from teams across Europe.

The Dutchman came through the ranks with Ajax before he signed for Manchester United in 2014. He made his senior debut for the Red Devils in February 2016 as United beat Arsenal 3-2 at Old Trafford.

Fosu Mensah has gained some valuable Premier League experience in recent years. He spent the 2017/18 campaign on loan at Crystal Palace before he joined Fulham the season after.

But the 22-year-old has failed to establish himself in the Man United first team up to now. He has made 30 appearances for the club in all competitions since 2016.

Fosu-Mensah’s only start of this season came on the opening day of the Premier League season. Man United lost 3-1 in disappointing fashion to Crystal Palace.

The full-back was subbed off with ten minutes to go. His only other outings this term have come in the Champions League as late cameos against Istanbul Basaksehir and RB Leipzig.

The Daily Mail have reported that Fosu-Mensah has turned down a new three-year contract extension with Manchester United. The player’s current deal expires at the end of this season.

The report adds that the likes of Marseille, Monaco and Hertha Berlin are all showing interest in Fosu-Mensah.

With his contract expiring in the summer, from January onwards he is able to sign a pre-contract agreement with another club ahead of a summer move.
