The 23-year-old defender has decided to leave Manchester United after playing 30 first-team matches over the last six-and-a-half seasons.

Bayern Leverkusen are currently third on the Bundesliga table and hopeful of winning the German title.
According to Manchester Evening News, the 23-year-old was not happy to leav United but is excited about the opportunity of a fresh start.
Fosu-Mensah rejected the new three-year contract from Manchester United in December.
The Holland defender is regarded for the different positions he can play such as centre-back, right-back or defensive midfield.
