European duo to challenge Man United for dynamic Bundesliga full-back

Barcelona and Bayern Munich join Manchester United in race for Bayer Leverkusen full-back Jeremie Frimpong

European giants Barcelona and Bayern Munich have joined Manchester United in the race for Bayer Leverkusen star Jeremie Frimpong, according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano on Twitter.

The Red Devils recently held a meeting with Jeffrey Lemmert, the Holland national’s agent. Apart from the Old Trafford side, the Blaugrana and the Bavarians also had a conversation with the full-back’s representative.

Frimpong has been on the Manchester-based club’s radar since October last year. The 22-year-old is enjoying a stellar campaign in Germany at the moment.

As for Bayern, they have the likes of Benjamin Pavard, Noussair Mazraoui and Josip Stanisic at their disposal for the right-back position. The Bundesliga giants also signed Joao Cancelo on loan from Manchester City in January.

However, after a quick start to life for the Portugal international at the Allianz Arena side, he has found game time hard to come by. The Bavarians will decide on the 28-year-old’s future in May.

On the other hand, Barcelona have played with Jules Kounde and Ronald Araujo as makeshift right-backs for most of the season. However, the Camp Nou side’s situation remains unclear due to Financial Fair Play (FFP).

Under Erik ten Hag, Diogo Dalot has been the first choice on the right-hand side of the defence. However, in recent weeks, Aaron Wan-Bissaka has also performed well in the Portugal international’s absence.

At the start of the season, the former Crystal Palace star struggled for minutes. But the 25-year-old has seemingly revived his reputation a bit with some decent displays since the 2022 World Cup.

However, Wan-Bissaka is still the second choice for the gaffer. Therefore, it is not out of the question to think that the English national will want to leave United next summer. However, with Barcelona and Bayern also eyeing Frimpong, it remains to be seen where the 22-year-old’s future lies.
