Speaking to United's official website, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer spoke highly of the young prospect, saying: "Obviously, he's had a couple of injuries, but he's a boy I can't wait to see in pre-season for us".

Manchester United legend, Wayne Rooney, believes signing world class players in the stature of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi would not solve the Old Trafford outfit's problems.

With Phil Jones and Chris Smalling looking well off the pace in the Premier League, this young defender could get his chance in the big league next season.

What many are dubbing as the Solskjaer's "project" has already got underway, with Swansea winger Dan James joining the club for £15m once the global transfer window opens next week.

United will compete in the Europa League next season after finishing outside of the top four.

After a relatively successful spell at Crystal Palace in the previous season, Fosu-Mensah was one of the many signings Fulham made to solidify their Premier League status, yet unsurprisingly this didn't go according to plan, as Fosu-Mensah was a part of a Fulham defence that conceded 81 goals in the league.

"I think you spend £30m, £40m and then try to improve them, which will also give you longevity out of the players and allow you to build a squad around the five or six new players that come in, plus a few of the players who are still there".

"You could bring in players in Ronaldo, Messi, Ramos or Bale but it's going to cost you £350million and you'd get two years out of them and you've written that money off".

"It's down to teams like United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham [Hotspur] and possibly Everton in the next two years to get to the level of Liverpool and Manchester City".

But he insists that this is the only way that the club can rediscover the success he had under Sir Alex Ferguson. "But they need to be good enough and allow the manager to improve them".

"So, let them have that time, let Ole have that time to build a team for the next two or three years who are going to compete not only at Premier League level but at Champions League level".
