Man Utd in talks for Bayer Leverkusen’s Jeremie Frimpong.


Reports from Germany suggest that Manchester United have opened talks with Bayer Leverkusen over the possible signing of Jeremie Frimpong. The right-back has been one of Leverkusen’s standout performers this season, scoring eight goals in the Bundesliga. United are said to be keen on recruiting a new right-sided defender, with both Diogo Dalot and Aaron Wan-Bissaka linked with moves away from Old Trafford as their contracts are due to expire next year.

Frimpong, who came through Manchester City’s youth academy, failed to make a first-team appearance before joining Celtic in 2019. He won the domestic treble in his first season at Celtic but spent just 16 months with the Scottish club before joining Leverkusen in 2021. The German club are reportedly preparing for his departure, having already signed Brazilian right-back Arthur in a deal worth €7m (£6.1m) from America Futebol Club.

United have made the signing of a new striker their top priority for the summer, but it appears that Erik ten Hag is keen to recruit a new right-sided defender. Sky Germany reports that United have now begun ‘concrete talks’ with Frimpong’s representatives ahead of the summer transfer window. Leverkusen are said to be holding out for a €40 million (£35m) transfer fee for the 22-year-old.

Frimpong will still have two years remaining on his current deal with Leverkusen this summer. He was in the Netherlands’ World Cup squad but did not make an appearance.

In other news, Graham Potter has been tipped for a return to management just hours after being sacked by Chelsea. The former Brighton boss is reportedly being considered by several clubs, including Southampton and Crystal Palace. Chelsea’s owners were said to be ‘alarmed’ by Potter picking a struggling star, leading to his dismissal.

Meanwhile, a footballer has been dropped for refusing to break his Ramadan fast. The player, whose identity has not been revealed, was reportedly told by his coach to eat and drink during a match but refused, citing his religious beliefs. The coach subsequently dropped him from the team, saying ‘rules are rules’.
