Respected journalist Fabrizio Romano claims that Manchester United have expressed interest in acquiring the services of Bayer Leverkusen defender Jeremie Frimpong this next winter.
The name of the Dutch superstar has been spoken in connection with United on a near-constant basis over the course of the past few weeks, and it was recently reported that he may join the club the following summer. According to Romano’s latest report, United may accelerate their pursuit of Frimpong, and the player may sign with them in January for a fee of £22 million.
According to reports, the group managed by Erik ten Hag is currently having negotiations between themselves as they attempt to find a replacement right-back to replace Aaron Wan-Bissaka. To ensure that there is sufficient coverage for Diogo Dalot, the board is also contemplating the possibility of bringing back Ethan Laird from his loan stay at Queen Park Rangers.
One of the most valuable players for United this season has been Dalot. Under the direction of manager Erik ten Hag, the Portuguese superstar has developed into a reliable player. Erik ten Hag has not looked beyond him for replacements. Wan-Bissaka has only come off the bench once this season, but Dalot has done so twenty times in all of this season’s matches.
Because Wan-Bissaka does not pose an offensive threat, the Dutch manager does not like playing with him, and it seems like a no-brainer option to get rid of him in January and get another right back. Frimpong would be an excellent addition for United because he would force Dalot to play at a higher level by letting him know that he has competition behind him.
Since making the move away from Celtic a year ago, Frimpong has significantly improved his reputation. His work on defense has been beneficial, and he has also made significant strides in improving his offensive play. In the current campaign, he has made 21 appearances for Leverkusen and has contributed an excellent five goals and three assists to the team’s overall score.
Despite the fact that his numbers are significantly higher than Dalot’s, Jadon Sancho’s move from the Bundesliga to the Premier League has not been an easy one. Sancho is one of numerous rising talents in the league. At the age of 21, Frimpong has plenty of time to adjust before challenging Dalot for a regular starting berth in the Premier League.
Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, receives a transfer request from Hannibal Mejbri
Hannibal Mejbri has requested permission from Manchester United to continue playing for Birmingham City this year.
Mejbri, 19, was selected for the Tunisia World Cup squad after participating in 15 Championship games while on loan at St. Andrew’s. He participated in the Qatar showcase match for 10 minutes against Denmark, who were eliminated from Group D along with France and Australia.
Mejbri is now scheduled to stay at Birmingham until the summer of 2019, but United does have the option to call back players on loan, and they may do so with some prospects during the January transfer window. Amad Diallo of the Ivory Coast and right back Ethan Laird of QPR are other players on loan (Sunderland).
In the end, it will depend on United’s midseason business dealings with incomings and outgoings. Mejbri, on the other hand, wishes to continue participating in senior games.
During an interview with CGTN, he was questioned about his near future. Mejbri said: “I only need some experience, and I have it with Birmingham in the Championship.
I’ll participate in the preseason when I get back and check out the situation.
He spoke to Ambition.com about his long-term goals: “I am now playing for Manchester United – and my goal is to achieve any milestone with the best team in the world. I will remain in Birmingham until next June and will do all in my power to help the team. After that, I’ll go back to Manchester United, but I have no idea what lies ahead.
Mejbri joined United in 2019 from AS Monaco and has now played three senior matches for the team.
