At the end of his contract with Manchester United next June, Timothy Fosu-Mensah (23) was sorely lacking playing time with the current leader of the Premier League, under the orders of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
With only two Champions League games and one Premier League match played this season with MU, the Dutch international right-back (3 caps) was on the shelves of OM and Pablo Longoria in this winter Mercato, but also of the ‘AS Monaco in Ligue 1.
But as the English media had announced, Timothy Fosu-Mensah thanked Olympique de Marseille and AS Monaco for their interest in him while telling them that he wanted to extend his contract with Manchester United .
However, the native of Amsterdam refused the proposal of the Mancunian leaders for his contract extension, and the latter is committed in favor of Bayer Leverkusen! The transfer value of Timothy Fosu-Mensah is reportedly € 1.7m between Manchester United and Bayer Leverkusen.
Not cool for OM and Jacques-Henri Eyraud on this issue … However, André Villas-Boas and Olympique de Marseille can quickly console themselves with the arrival of Pol Lirola from Fiorentina during this winter Mercato .
