Manchester United defender Tim Fosu-Mensah is having a medical at Crystal Palace ahead of a one-year loan move.
The 19-year-old is highly regarded as one of the best products of United’s famous academy and has been tipped to make success at the Old Trafford following his impressive feat since last season.
However, United boss Jose Mourinho is keen on adding a new face at the right-back position to provide adequate competition for Antonio Valencia who was in a tremendous form for the Red Devils last season.
Fosu-Mensah has now been allowed to leave the club on loan to get more first team experience sparking interest from a few clubs in the lower rung of the Premier League.
Crystal Palace boss Frank de Boer is understood to be a keen admirer of the Dutch youngster, who is also capable of playing at centre-back or wingback in
The Eagles were said to be pursuing Arsenal defender Calum Chambers who is also similar in Fosu-Mensah in versatility but were unwilling to pay the Gunners’ valuation for the English defender.
United are believed to be in talks in several targets that could fill in as cover for Valencia who has been a key figure for the club in the past twelve months but Mourinho is concerned about the Ecudorian’s ability to keep fit for the whole season after gone past 30 years of age.
