Manchester United supporters have taken to Twitter to share their opinions on talk that Timothy Fosu-Mensah will leave the club this summer.
The 18-year-old made a real impression at Old Trafford last season under Louis van Gaal, and emerged as one of the more promising youngsters coming through at the club.
However, speculation this week has linked a number of fringe players at United with an exit, with Fosu-Mensah included in the list of those who may potentially leave Manchester this summer.
Whether it’s on a loan deal or a permanent one, it’s evident that United fans want to keep the talented defender at the club to allow him to continue his development with them and play his part in Jose Mourinho’s squad next season.
It may do little to convince the Portuguese tactician though, who will have his own plans and ideas for what he wants his squad to look like in his first season in charge, but the general consensus from supporters is clear in that they want Fosu-Mensah to stay.
Fosu-Mensah isn’t leaving I’m 100% sure. The perfect type of Mourinho player, strong, quick and powerful defender with a football brain.

If Fosu-Mensah is sold you literally don’t understand how upset I’ll be.

Don’t worry, United can sign Fosu-Mensah for £100m a few years later

Think Mourinho would be mad to move on Fosu-Mensah, Borthwick-Jackson or Pereira.

On this “Fosu-Mensah to leave”-story. Why would United give him a new (and lower) squad number if they didn’t intend for him to stay?

Has JM told Fosu-Mensah & Borthwick-Jackson to look for other clubs (unless it’s loan)? Doubt it. I know he’s ‘anti-youth’ but it’s strange

I’d personally be absolutely gutted if Man Utd let go of Timothy Fosu-Mensah. I’d presume it’s a loan, if anything. Pogba Mark II.
