Manchester United have been having a torrid season this and numerous departures and signings are expected in the summer with the new management in INEOS.

According to a report from The Sun, one of the possible signings is rumoured to be high-flying Bayer Leverkusen right back Jeremie Frimpong who is having an absolute stormer of a season.

Frimpong has been putting up insane numbers for a right back, and this has naturally attracted interest from all across Europe, including United and city rivals Manchester City.

The report goes on to allege that Pep believes the young Dutchman can be the permanent replacement for ageing City captain and right back Kyle Walker.

The Dutch international, 23, has remarkably notched 11 goals and 11 assists across all competitions this term. Believe it or not, he has outscored United’s top men in Rashford and Bruno, from right back!

Frimpong spent over a decade at City’s academy before his move to Celtic, and the fact he would be classed as home-grown and academy-trained is another financial plus to Etihad bosses.

He can play on either flank, and Bayer have also used him in midfield.

United have also made regular visits to watch him at Bayer Leverkusen, where he has shone in their march towards a first Bundesliga title.

Understandably, Leverkusen are desperate to keep hold of Frimpong.

Fabrizio Romano had already confirmed the inclusion of a release clause in his contract, so if that is met, perhaps there is not much Leverkusen can do to hold on to him.

The release clause is worth just €40m, which is not much for a player of his talent, age and potential. I could prove a very beneficial investment in the long run.

United are looking to bolster their back line this summer, hoping for more production in that right-back position. Frimpong certainly feels like an upgrade
