Manchester United manager has confirmed in his recent interview that young talented defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah will leave the club on permanent basis this season.
The 23-year who has been struggling for game time has now been told that he can leave the club this month as he is deemed surplus to requirement.
The Dutch International signed for Manchester United from Ajax in 2014 and has only played 30 times for the first team.
He has only made three appearance for the first team this season, including his start against Crystal Palace in Manchester United’s opening game of the season.
His contract is now set to expire this summer and contract renewal talks haven’t even started.
In Solskjær recent interview, the manager have now confirmed that Fosu-Mensah will most likely leave the club this year.
In his words, he said:
“I’m not sure if Timo is going to stay or he’s going to take an option now,
“He’s not played enough, so of course he’s been allowed to speak to clubs, with a view to leaving now in January.
“It’s difficult when you’ve got good players, talented players, and you can’t give them game time.
“He’s now at the stage where he needs to go and play again. It might be end of January, or it might be in the summer that he finds somewhere else.
“So he’s working hard, Tim, he’s ready for a move for any club that he feels ready for.”
Ole has also stated that both Sergio Romero and Marcos Rojo will leave the club as their contract expires the summer.
