The future of Red Devils defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah is uncertain as the versatile player still doesn’t know whether his deal with Man United will be extended.

The Mirror claim that Timothy’s deal is ready to expire this summer, although United have the option to trigger a one-year extension to the contract.

The report adds that the Norwegian manager is yet to decide on Fosu-Mensah’s future, with the Mirror claiming that Man United coach wants to keep the defender as part of his squad.

It’s added that the Coronavirus pandemic have halted contract negotiations, leaving the 22-year-old defender’s future up in the air. The Dutch defender is reportedly prepared to resume talks over a new deal once lockdown is over.

Timothy broke into Red Devils first-team squad during the 15/16 campaign under Louis van Gaal, showing some real promise and talent.

Unfortunately, Foseu-Mensah didn’t receive the same amount of playing time under Jose Mourinho and spent the last two campaign on loan with Crystal Palace and Fulham.

The Netherlands international was fantastic during both loan spells but his time with Fulham was unfortunately hit by a long-term injury.

There’s no doubt that the defender has shown enough potential to play an important squad role for Man United, extending the ace’s deal for the foreseeable future should be a no-brainer for the club.
