OVERVIEW OF: Bayer Leverkusen Signs Timothy Fosu-Mensah From Man Utd
Timothy Fosu-Mensah has landed in Germany to complete his move from Manchester United to Bayer Leverkusen.
The Dutch defender is set to move on a permanent £1.8m deal and sign a four-year contract until June 2024.
Ajax, Marseille and Hertha Berlin had also been interested after he rejected a new contract at United but Leverkusen who sit third in the Bundesliga table – have won the race.
Fosu-Mensah’s deal at Old Trafford is set to expire this summer and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said last week he was happy for the player to leave the club this transfer window to get regular games somewhere else.
The 23-year-old has only played 30 times for United since making his debut as a substitute in the 3-2 win over Arsenal in February 2016.
United have only been involved in one transfer deal this transfer window after they completed the signing of winger Amad Diallo from Atalanta on a four-and-a-half-year deal.
