For Manchester United, planning behind the scenes will undoubtedly be underway due to everything that’s going on in the world.
Amongst the decisions Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has to make is in regards to player retention. After all, the playing squad can only be so big, and for new additions to be made, others will have to move on in order to balance the books and ensure everyone gets minutes…
Timothy Fosu-Mensah’s future is a weird one. After bursting onto the scene a few years ago under Louis van Gaal, the Dutchman has been plagued by a series of injuries, while Jose Mourinho being appointed didn’t help his case, either.
Well, over the weekend, The Mirror ran a story explaining that the 22-year-old United man faces an uncertain future at the club.
Apparently, Fosu-Mensah still hasn’t been told whether a one-year contract extension option will be extended by the Old Trafford outfit, with his current deal ending this June.
Furthermore, sources have told The Mirror that Solskjaer wants to keep the Dutchman, but talks have been put on hold due to the global pandemic that’s happening at this point in time.
Fosu-Mensah can leave for nothing this summer if the one-year extension isn’t triggered, where they’ll be ‘no shortage’ of clubs interested – though those aren’t named.
Understandably, Fosu-Mensah is desperate to remain at United, and is prepared to play the long game and wait for contract talks to resume upon the commencement of football.
