Speaking to the United’s Stand’s Youtube channel, Fabrizio said, ‘It’s important to say that from what I understand there was a meeting between the agent of Jeremie Frimpong and Manchester United.’
‘Man Utd have confirmed their interest in the player. As you say it is something that United have been interested in since October, and November.’
‘They’ve sent their scouts multiple times to follow Jeremie Frimpong who’s doing very well with Bayer Leverkusen.
‘They feel he has different skills than the other right-backs they have in the squad and this is why they are monitoring him.’
‘He’s very young, he would love to move to the Premier League – this is an important point. So Frimpong would give priority to Manchester United and the Premier League in general.’
He also talked about the interest of Bayern Munich and FC Barcelona as Frimpong’s agent met representatives of both clubs.
‘The other opportunities he has at the moment are – his agent met with Bayern [Munich], but they are still slow because they have Joao Cancelo. They have to make a decision on Joao Cancelo in the next weeks and months.’
‘He also [has interest] from Barcelona but we don’t know the financial situation of Barcelona so they’re waiting on financial fair play, before deciding anything.’
‘This is why for Manchester United it could be an opportunity. The meeting was positive. It’s one of the names they have on their list.’
Lastly, the Italian journalist claimed, Manchester United’s interest in Frimpong does not affect the situation of Diogo Dalot, who is in talks with the club for a contract extension.
‘For sure the player would be happy about the move. Now it’s on United to see if they will receive a proposal for [Aaron] Wan-Bissaka. My feeling is if a bid comes in for Wan-Bissaka there is a concrete possibility of him leaving and for United to go for Frimpong as a future option to create competition for Dalot, who is in talks to extend his contract.’

The young Dutchman joined Bayern Leverkusen in the summer of 2021 from Celtic following his impressive spell at the Glasgow club. Celtic does have a sell-on clause for the Dutchman resulting in the club to receive in a tidy amount on Frimpong’s next move from Leverkusen who was previously indicated that a transfer fee of up to £50m could be reached.
Manchester United made a big step this term fighting in three competitions under head coach Erik Ten Hag’s debut season with the Red Devils. The Old Trafford outfit already grabbed the Carabao Cup and made it into the latter stage of the Europa League and FA Cup, the club already have one eye on the summer transfer window and next season.
