Jeremie Frimpong is doing great at Bayer Leverkusen and is doing well in football. The young wing defender, who does not seem to be eligible for the Dutch national team under national coach Ronald Koeman, may make a nice transfer in the coming summer. Manchester United, are you paying attention?
‘Jeremie Frimpong option for Manchester United’
Former footballer Mikael Silvestre, active between 1999 and 2008 The Red Devils, feels like a transfer from Frimpong to Old Trafford. In conversation with betting expert, a sister site of SoccerNews.nl, he says: “I think Jeremie Frimpong is a good player. He makes an energetic impression and is strong on attack. But… I have to say it unfortunately: defensively it is not your thing.”
In that respect, a comparison can be made with what United already has in house: “With Aaron (Wan-Bissaka, ed.) and (Diogo, ed.) Dalot you always wonder what you are getting: are they standing their ground today? man on defense?”
“But if Dalot leaves…”, Silvestre continues. “Then there is a spot available at United for Jeremie Frimpong. But please let’s keep it to ourselves, because in football everything can be so different.”
New ‘Hakim Ziyech’?
Koeman recently announced his Orange pre-selection for the Final Four of the Nations League and there is again no room for Frimpong. The situation is starting to get a bit tricky, because the back went to the World Cup in Qatar but didn’t make any minutes there, so he could still choose Ghana or England…
Will United be champions next season?
