Timothy Fosu-Mensah reveals what he told Donny van de Beek about Manchester United before he signed for the club

Manchester United defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah has revealed what he told teammate and compatriot Donny van de Beek before his move to Old Trafford.

He told the United podcast:

“I told him United is a big club, if not the biggest club.

“I said it’s good if you have the opportunity to come here. We have got very good team-mates, the quality is very good here.

“I said, ‘It’s up to you because I can’t make the decision for you but it’s a very good club.’ At the end of the day, it was his decision.”

Donny Van de Beek joined the club in a £40m deal during the summer from Ajax.

Despite his limited opportunities, the Dutchman has showed flashes of brilliance so far.
