Timothy Fosu-Mensah has no plans to leave Manchester United on a permanent transfer in the summer transfer window, sources have told Sport Witness.
Jose Mourinho allowed the Dutchman to join Crystal Palace on a season-long loan deal last summer. He made 21 appearances for the Eagles, playing in both right-back and centre-back positions.
Fosu-Mensah’s displays for Palace earned him a call-up from Ronald Koeman for the Netherlands’ international against England in November 2017.
According to Marca, the 20-year-old’s form for the London club has attracted interest from Valencia. The La Liga outfit had reportedly contacted the Red Devils as they wanted to sign the versatile player in the summer transfer window.
United completed the signing of Diogo Dalot from FC Porto, Marca believes the Portuguese defender’s arrival saw Valencia turn their attention towards Fosu-Mensah.
However, the Dutchman has no plans to leave the 20-time English champions on a permanent deal as he still has a future at Old Trafford. Fosu-Mensah can play anywhere across the back line and also as a defensive midfielder.
There are reports that Mourinho is looking to bring a new centre-back this summer. This would mean there would be increased competition for a place in the starting lineup, but Fosu-Mensah is ready to fight.
Sport Witness also understands another loan move for the former Ajax academy player could be a possibility this summer.
