Picture: Huge Manchester United talent hints at split allegiances on Instagram

If it wasn’t for Marcus Rashford, or Jose Mourinho, or Zlatan Ibrahimovic for that matter, then a lot more people at Manchester United would be talking about Timothy Fosu-Mensah.

Basically the 18-year-old is a big talent. He put in a few really mature and impressive displays in United’s defence towards the back end of last season and will hope to kick on this term.

He also looks like a real prospect for the Netherlands, having already made 31 junior appearances for the country of his birth. But should this Instagram upload have the Dutch worried?

Fosu-Mensah has had the Dutch flag stitched into one of his fluorescent yellow Nike boots, and the Ghana flag stitched into the other, suggesting that his international allegiances could be split.

The highly-rated teenager is eligible to play for Ghana as that is where his parents were born, and he is yet to play a competitive international match for the Netherlands senior team.

According to The Mirror, Ghana approached Fosu-Mensah about representing them in April. He was named in Danny Blind’s Dutch squad in May, but had to withdraw because of injury.
