Timothy Fosu-Mensah's agent, Jonathan Barnett, has exclusively revealed to IBTimes UK that there is no truth in reports linking the defender with a move away from Old Trafford.

The 18-year-old joined the Red Devils from Ajax's academy two summers ago, and impressed in his debut campaigns with United's youth teams. His versatility saw him feature across the back four and he earned plaudits from fans and pundits for a series of impressive performances.

Then manager Louis van Gaal gave the player his first-team debut in a 3-2 victory over Arsenal in February. Fosu-Mensah subsequently went on to make two starts and an additional six substitute appearances in the Premier League.

Jose Mourinho replaced the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss as United manager in May. According to the Daily Mail, the Portuguese tactician looking to let nine first-team squad members leave the club in the summer transfer window as part of a wide shake-up.

Fosu-Mensah is one of the names, along with Bastian Schweinsteiger, who is rumoured to have no future at Old Trafford. However, the Dutch defender's agent has rubbished reports linking him with a move away from his current employers.

Asked by IBTimes Uk about claims Mourinho was looking to off-load Fosu-Mensah this summer, Barnett replied: "There is no truth in it. These reports are complete rubbish."

Fosu-Mensah himself has said featuring for Manchester United is a dream role, and spoke enthusiastically about his role since debuting under Van Gaal last season.

"To play for Manchester United, I think it is every player's dream, I feel very proud to be part of a very great club. The fans of Manchester United are truly amazing; they always stick by the side of the players," Fosu-Mensah told Youth Academies.

"My aim last season was to make my debut for Manchester United and that happened, so I was very pleased with that. I played 10 games and believe I developed well from that and learned a lot from it... So I'm happy how last season went for me."
