Manchester United Transfer News: Manchester United want Jeremie Frimpon

Manchester United Transfer News: Manchester United want Jeremie Frimpong, according to Florian Plettenberg. In preparation for a possible summer signing, the club has already spoken with his agent, Jeffrey Lemmert.

The 22-year-old fullback has had a fantastic season, drawing interest from teams all around Europe. United has taken the initiative in trying to sign him because they have no intention of losing out. United’s discussions with his agent have gone well, and the club plans to make an offer for the player in the summer.

Frimpong got his start in the sport at the Man City youth program. He worked his way through the club’s levels but was never able to crack the starting lineup. The 22-year-old player departed from the club and signed for Celtic for the 2019 season. Bayer Leverkusen went all in on the Netherlands international in the winter of 2021 after seeing his stellar play in Scotland.

Since then, he has played in 83 games for the German club and contributed 28 goals. The 22-year-old’s performance has skyrocketed in the current season. In 36 games, he has contributed to 17 goals. United has taken notice of the fullbacks due to their stellar play.

A new offensive right back is needed for Erik Ten Hag’s squad. Despite his strong second half of the season, Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s future at the club remains unclear. Ten Hag hopes to add another right back to his roster soon after Diogo Dalot signs a contract extension.

The Dutch manager is looking to replace Wan-Bissaka, who is expected to leave in the summer, with a young, fast right back who can provide more of a danger. He thinks very highly of Frimpong and would be thrilled to have him as a member of his team.

It’s possible that Ten Hag’s technique might work well with the 22-year-old. The Red Devils have so far had discussions with his agency, and everything seems to be proceeding according to plan. Still, with so much competition for his services, it should be an exciting summer if they can get his signature.
