Man U not eager to have £35m-rated Frimpong

Man Utd do not have Jeremie Frimpong at the ‘top of their list’ despite the Bayer Leverkusen defender being spotted in Manchester recently.

There have been rumours for months that Frimpong is a target for Erik ten Hag but Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s form towards the end of the season could’ve changed the Dutchman’s mind over pursuing a new right-back this summer.

Wan-Bissaka became a key part of Ten Hag’s side after the World Cup break and Man Utd are currently looking at addressing more pressing concerns.

Man Utd held talks with Frimpong’s representatives back in April but there hasn’t been any more concrete interest in the right-back from the Red Devils.

It has been revealed that the Frimpong is low down on United list of priorities.

‘Tongues were wagging in Manchester at the weekend when Bayer Leverkusen full-back Jeremie Frimpong was spotted in popular Italian eaterie San Carlo.

‘A well-known celebrity haunt, it is a favourite with the football fraternity and Frimpong was spotted alongside friends and agents Dirk Hebel and Jeffrey Lemmert.

‘The 22-year-old is no stranger to Manchester after spending his formative years there with Manchester City. He has been linked with a move to United, and indeed his representatives held talks with the club in April, but club sources say he is not top of their list.

‘United have other priorities to deal with though they still have interest from Premier League clubs in Aaron Wan-Bissaka. Bournemouth, Crystal Palace and Fulham all enquired about the 25-year-old earlier this year but are looking at cheaper options.’

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Leverkusen’s asking price will be between £30m and £35m for the defender.
