Man United have offered a three-year deal to Timothy Fosu-Mensah that he will spend weeks weighing up, Football Insider can exclusively reveal.
The 22-year-old’s future at Old Trafford is in doubt as he is out of contract at the end of the season and has started four games in three-and-a-half years for the club.
A United source has told Football Insider that the club are keen to keep Fosu-Mensah despite his fringe status and have offered him a contract running until 2024.
The 22-year-old has yet to accept and has told the Old Trafford hierarchy he will hold back on making a decision until the start of January.
That will allow the three-times Holland international to assess any other potential offers.
He will be free to negotiate a pre-contract agreement with overseas clubs from 1 January ahead of leaving at the end of the season.
United triggered the one-year extension in Fosu-Mensah’s contract last season as they wanted to retain his value due to the player’s potential.
Fosu-Mensah started in the Premier League win at Crystal Palace on16 July – his first United appearance in three years – and he went on to appear in the FA Cup and Europa League semi-final defeats to Chelsea and Sevilla.
The academy graduate started this season in the absence of Aaron Wan-Bissaka against Palace but has only made one substitute appearance since – in the 2-1 reverse to Istanbul Basaksehir.
Fosu-Mensah has not made the matchday squad for any of the club’s last six Premier League matches.
However, he has been in the 18 for all four of the club’s Champions League fixtures.
