Jose Mourinho blocks Timothy Fosu-Mensah loan move from Man United in January

Manchester United will not allow Timothy Fosu-Mensah to leave Old Trafford on loan in the January transfer window, according to BBC reporter Steve Stone.

He’s made just six appearances and two starts across all competitions for Man United so far this season, racking up only 33 minutes on the field since September.

One of Mourinho’s first jobs at Man United was to offer Fosu-Mensah a new contract, keeping him at Old Trafford until 2020, but he still remains behind some players in the pecking order.

Steve Stone claims as many as five clubs have been credited with an interest in the Dutchman, but Mourinho is unwilling to permit a move away.


The Portuguese boss is keen for the youngster to continue his development at the club rather than going elsewhere and this could because of how Wolves treated Cameron Borthwick-Jackson during his loan deal.

He was a brilliant player and would have probably picked up more game time at United and it seems Mourinho has plans for Fosu-Mensah as he’s set to stay at Old Trafford for the rest of the campaign.

Especially with United’s involvement in numerous competitions, Fosu-Mensah may just find himself finally picking up some game time as Mourinho previously stated his fears over the fixture congestion.
