Timothy Fosu-Mensah sends message showing how much he wants to succeed at Manchester United

The young Manchester United player has one dream according to a recent social media post.

Manchester United have so many talented young players coming through the ranks right now and arguably the best of the bunch is Dutch teenager Timothy Fosu-Mensah.

Signing in the summer that saw the likes of Angel Di Maria and Radamel Falcao arrive at Old Trafford, it would have been easy to forget all about Fosu-Mensah, but his performances for United first at under-18 level and more recently for the under-21s speak of a player with considerable potential.

Equally comfortable at centre-back and in defensive midfield, the 17-year-old has all the attributes to be a future first-team star; in fact he could be the best young player in United’s academy since Paul Pogba.

This time United will be desperate to hold on to their latest gem and considering manager Louis van Gaal made him one of his first signings, there is every chance Fosu-Mensah will get his first-team chance when the time is right.

That certainly appears to be on the player’s own mind, as he took to Twitter last week to send a succinct but insightful message on Twitter.

“One dream,” the teenager wrote, posting a photo of him in a United strip.

It is easy to get excited about young players only to be proved wrong when they falter, but Fosu-Mensah is the real deal, and United fans are in for a treat when he inevitably makes a first-team spot his own in the next few years.
