Manchester United are set to trigger a one-year extension to Timothy Fosu-Mensah’s contract in the coming weeks, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun is reporting that the Red Devils are set to extend the young defender’s contract by a year as he works his way back to full fitness following a serious knee injury

As things stand, the 21-year-old is in the final few months of his contract and he is free to speak to foreign clubs about a possible transfer in January.

The same story says that Fosu-Mensah should be back available for Manchester United in the coming weeks as he looks to return to match fitness as soon as possible.

As is the case with most player contracts at Old Trafford, the Red Devils have the option to extend by a further year to keep him at the club until the summer of 2021 at the very least.

The same article claims that Fosu-Mensah is keen for an increase in his £20,000 a week wages, but he will stick with those terms for the next year.

It is also suggested that Manchester United would be open to letting him leave on loan in January if he were to be offered an opportunity for some regular playing time.

Manchester United are currently preparing for their Europa League trip to Astana in the group stage on Thursday night.
