Timothy Fosu-Mensah Extends Manchester United Contract


Youth. Courage. Success.

We have seen this through the manager’s recruitment policy, but also through his integration of the academy products into the first-team picture. Solskjaer has wasted no time in tying down such prospects, with many youth team members extending their deals with the club.

Timothy Fosu-Mensah is the latest name to be added to the list (via MEN), despite their being initial worries over his future.

United have decided to trigger the one year extension in the Dutchman’s contract, which was initally due to expire this summer. Despite not playing for the first-team since 2017, the club have given the 22-year-old another opportunity to impress.

Solskjaer is opting to lay down a foundation for young talents to impress on, using such players to rejuvenate the core of the squad, which had looked so depleted over the past few seasons.

Like his fellow graduates, Fosu-Mensah has been granted a chance to breakthrough into Man United’s first-team picture, an opportunity that only comes around once in your career.
