Manchester United do not have a buyback clause on Timothy Fosu-Mensah following his move to Bayer Leverkusen.

The Dutchman joined the Bundesliga side on a €2m deal earlier this week, with United electing to sell this month rather than losing him on a free at the end of the season.

United had been keen for the Dutchman to sign a new deal at the club, but that never happened, and he has instead moved to Germany in search of regular playing time.

Reports in England around the deal suggested Manchester United had agreed on a buyback option in the move, but Fussball Transfers insist that isn’t the case.

They report that the player’s move does not include such a clause, despite the claims in England, and thus Bayer Leverkusen down have to fear an ‘unexpected departure’ from the defender in future.

The website also confirms reports elsewhere that Manchester United pocketed €2m from the move and the 23-year-old has signed a deal until 2024 with his new club.

It now remains to be seen if he can kick on and develop as expected with the regular playing time that wasn’t on offer at Old Trafford.
