Jose Mourinho tells Man United to offer starlet new contract – report

Jose Mourinho has reportedly instructed Manchester United to hand Timothy Fosu-Mensah a new long-term deal

Jose Mourinho has instructed Manchester United to hand Timothy Fosu-Mensah a new long-term deal at Old Trafford, according to reports.

The teenage defender earned plenty of new admirers last season after breaking into the Red Devils’ first team under Louis van Gaal.

Mourinho has already given his seal of approval to fellow youngsters Marcus Rashford and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, who both signed new contracts with the Red Devils this week.

Now, the Portuguese coach is understood to be keen to tie Fosu-Mensah down to a new deal ahead of his first season in charge at Old Trafford.

Voetbal International is reporting that United are planning to offer the defender a four-year contract extension at the club.

Mourinho has been tasked with guiding United back to the forefront of English football after a string of disappointing seasons following Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.
