Insider claims five clubs want Man United defender but Jose Mourinho won’t sanction transfer
Five clubs want to sign Timothy Fosu-Mensah on loan from Manchester United, according to a BBC Sport reporter
Timothy Fosu-Mensah is attracting interest from five clubs but Jose Mourinho doesn’t want the Manchester United defender to leave Old Trafford, according to a BBC Sport reporter.
Simon Stone, who covered Manchester United’s 2-1 loss to promoted side Hull City on Thursday night, has taken to Twitter to provide an update on the promising Netherlands defender.
Fosu-Mensah has struggled to break into the Manchester United first-team under Mourinho this season despite the full-back emerging as an exciting talent last season.
Louis van Gaal gave the Dutch defender a chance to shine in the Manchester United side despite his inexperience in the Premier League.
According to BBC Sport reporter Stone, Fosu-Mensah is unsurprisingly attracting interest from a host of different clubs in the January transfer window.
Five clubs have expressed an interest in taking Fosu-Mensah on loan but Jose set to keep him @ManUtd for remainder of season as it stands.

Fosu-Mensah has made one substitute appearance in the 2016-17 Premier League campaign.
The 19-year-old racked up 10 games in all competitions under Mourinho’s predecessor Van Gaal last term.
Manchester United are in sixth place in the table.
