Advanced negotiations: Man Utd now in talks to sign “exciting talent”; he’s open to the move

Posted by

According to rumours, Manchester United is in advanced talks to sign defender Jeremie Frimpong from Bayer Leverkusen and bring him to the Premier League.

What has changed since Frimpong joined Man United?

With a WhoScored match rating of 7.20, the Netherlands international has been a standout star at the BayArena this season. Despite the fact that his contract isn’t up for another two years, it’s thought that he’s open to moving elsewhere during the upcoming transfer window.

According to journalist Fabrizio Romano, the Red Devils have long been interested in the Bundesliga right-back, and after learning that he was considering his options, they wasted no time in making an effort to sign him to Old Trafford.

According to Sky Sports writer Florian Plettenberg, Erik Ten Hag “admires” the 22-year-old player. In April, Plettenberg stated that the M60 club had begun negotiations with the player’s agency about a summer deal.

Sport Witness quotes German site SportBILD as saying that Frimpong discussions between Manchester United and the Red Devils are “fairly advanced” at this point. The £22,000 a week defender for Bayer Leverkusen is anticipated to decline a transfer to Real Madrid at the end of the current campaign because he is “more drawn to England than Spain.” After being unimpressed by Diogo Dalot or Aaron Wan-Bissaka since coming, Ten Hag is “keen” to add a new right-back to his squad and has chosen his Dutch counterpart as the best target.

Would Frimpong be a wise addition to Man United’s roster?

The fact that Frimpong graduated from the Manchester City academy will be known to Manchester United, but it appears that the “exciting talent,” as described by reporter Stefan Bienkowski, is prepared to move to the red side of the city and would be a great addition for Ten Hag.

In 42 games across all competitions this season, the World Cup and Europa League participant has contributed 19 goals (ten assists and nine goals), earning four man-of-the-match honours as a result of his play.

The Puma-sponsored gem, who is adaptable enough to play in right midfield and on the other flank at left-back outside of his natural position, also ranks in the 99th percentile for six different statistics, including successful take-ons and number of touches in the attacking penalty area, showing that he isn’t afraid to take on his marker and get forward. This makes him the ideal player to sign a contract at Old Trafford.
