Manchester United’s teenage defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah agreed in principle on a new long-term deal at Old Trafford, according to Daily Mail.

The 18-year old is one of the brightest youngsters at the club and new manager José Mourinho is keen to help the Dutch footballer in his development.

Mourinho is keen to follow the club principles as the United academy is known to develop their youth players.

Fosu-Mensah had joined Manchester United from Ajax back in 2014 and has broken into the first team in February this year after coming on as a substitute for Rojo in their 3-2 win against Arsenal.

The 18-year old went on to make 10 appearances for the Red Devils and is expected to do big things this season.

The young defender was expected to leave Manchester United after José Mourinho took over as manager but he is set to stay with the first team this season while other young players are set to leave on loan or permanent moves.

At the end of July, Fosu-Mensah’s agent Jonathan Barnet reassured concerned fans: ‘All those rumors in media are from nowhere,’ he told Voetbal International.

The 18-year old can play a number of positions which include defensive midfield, centre defense and can also play as a full-back and is tipped to do big things in the coming years.
