Manchester United are suffering from some defensive weakness and struggles this season, especially with the injuries in the backline since the beginning of the season and bad performances of Phil Jones and Chris Smalling.
Manchester United are keen to sign a new defender in the winter transfer window, where they are requested to sign a world class defender in order to win a cup and compete for the top four this season.
However, a new defender seems he is on his way to the Old Trafford after his manager has officially confirmed that the defender will be leaving his club to Manchester United.
The Italian manager, Claudio Ranieri, has officially confirmed according to Sky Sports that the 21 years old defender, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, will be joining Manchester United, his former club, after being on loan for the London based Premier League club.
Timothy Fosu-Mensah has struggled to impress and played only 627 minutes with Fulham in eight Premier League matches, and one EFL Cup match.
Timothy Fosu-Mensah’s loan was until the end of this season, but he seems available to join Manchester United, or leave on another loan. Knowing that the player can play as a center back, right back, and defensive midfielder.
