Man Utd 22-year-old defender keen on to stay at Old Trafford amid exit rumours

Manchester United utility man Timothy Fosu-Mensah has insisted that he wants to remain at Old Trafford having finally made his return from a lengthy injury last week.

The 22-year-old centre-back suffered cruciate knee ligament injury while being on loan to Championship club Fulham last campaign and spent nine months on the sidelines before featuring for the Red Devils Under-23 side against Newcastle United on Friday night.

The Netherlands international’s defender future at Old Trafford looks far from certain, though, having not played a single senior game for the Red Devils since May back in 2017.

Dutch centre-back has been rumoured with another loan exit having spent the past two campaign at Crystal Palace and the Cottagers respectively, however, he is determined to remain and fight for his place under Norwegian head-coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

“I am focusing on being here, we have a lot of games. It’s good to be at Manchester United,” Fosu-Mensah told the┬áManchester Evening News.

Fosu-Mensah, who can play in either defence or midfield area, has played just 12 Premier League games for the Red Devils, however, he has been tipped to have a bright future at Old Trafford and unlikely to see him leaving the team on a permanent basis.
