Manchester United are set to bolster the academy with the addition of Ajax youngster Timothy Fosu Mensah, according to reports.
United scouts watched Mensah, 16, in action last April during Ajax’s AEGON Future Cup triumph where the Dutch side won the tournament.
Last year, we signed Saidy Janko after he impressed our scouts in the Blue Stars FIFA Youth Cup and Mensah could follow suit.
Comfortable playing across all of the defence as well as in defensive midfield, Mensah’s versatility is likely to be one reason why United have been impressed with him.
Here’s some footage of him in action:
Scouting Europe for the best talent has unearthed some gems in recent years with the likes of Pogba, Daehli and Januzaj, and Mensah could well join that list in the future if the move is completed.
