Former Manchester City defender "excited" to join Manchester United, reveals Romano

Manchester United transfer target Jeremie Frimpong would be "super excited" to join Erik ten Hag's side, Fabrizio Romano has claimed.

Frimpong is a right-back for Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen and the Netherlands national team.

This season he has registered five goals and three assists from 21 games playing at both right-back and right wing-back.

He is currently on international duty under former United boss Louis van Gaal in Qatar for the World Cup.

The 21-year-old is yet to make an appearance at senior level for the Netherlands but is attracting interest from United.

One thing many United supporters may not know about the right-back is that he spent nine years in Manchester City's academy.

He never made a professional appearance for City, however, he played regularly in the Premier League 2 and UEFA Youth League.

What has been said about the potential transfer?

Romano has been across the majority of United's most recent transfers and has recently been speaking to a United fan channel.

"Jeremie Frimpong dreams of playing Premier League football and would be “super excited” to join #mufc. His price tag is around €20-25M."

He then later went on to say: "Jeremie Frimpong is absolutely open to join to #mufc."

£50million signing Aaron Wan-Bissaka is yet to be seen at right-back under Ten Hag and earlier in the season, the United boss said the club need another player in that position.

"The development [of Dalot] is really good, but I have to mention that a club like Manchester United needs two good full-backs, because we have a lot of games to cover."
