Manchester City have talked to Jeremie Frimpong about possibly coming back to play for them. But other big clubs like Manchester United, Arsenal, and Aston Villa are also interested.

Reports suggests that Jeremie Frimpong, who played a big part in Bayer Leverkusen winning the Bundesliga title without losing any games under Xabi Alonso, might be returning to the club he left in 2019 for a second stint.

Potential Return of Jeremie Frimpong to Manchester City

Jeremie Frimpong, who came up through Manchester City’s successful youth program, is talking, through his representatives, about returning to play for Manchester City’s main team at the Etihad Stadium.

Manchester City, who are now just one win away from another Premier League title after their 2-0 victory against Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday. They are checking to see if Jeremie Frimpong is available and how much it might cost to bring him in.

The 23-year-old’s release clause is only £34 million, which shouldn’t be a problem for the wealthy clubs interested in him.

Interest in Jeremie Frimpong from Other Premier League Clubs

Manchester United are also interested, as they’ve been keeping an eye on Frimpong since 2023. Aston Villa, who will be in a strong position this summer after qualifying for the Champions League for the first time, are also interested.

Another team to watch is Arsenal, who are likely to finish as the second-best team after Manchester City. Mikel Arteta’s team needs a right-sided full-back, even though they have talented players like Ben White, Jurrien Timber, and Takehiro Tomiyasu.

Real Madrid and Bayern Munich Eyeing Bayer Leverkusen Defender

According to reports, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich are also interested in Frimpong. Real Madrid is looking for a right-back since their current one, Dani Carvajal, is 32 years old. Bayern Munich is interested too, especially after Frimpong scored an impressive goal against them in February.

That goal is just one of the impressive 14 goals Frimpong scored in the 2023/24 season. He also made 12 assists. His incredible speed and great performance near the opponent’s goal might make Manchester City see him as a long-term replacement for Kyle Walker, who has been with the team for a long time.

Evaluation of Jeremie Frimpong by Leverkusen Director

The Leverkusen director, Simon Rolfes, described Frimpong as a quick player with amazing speed and skill after they bought him for £11 million in January 2021.

His capacity to speed up and slow down is exceptional. If you excel at something in Celtic and in the Bundesliga, you’ll likely excel in other leagues too. When he arrived, there were areas he needed to improve, and he’s been doing exceptionally well in that regard. He’s motivated to improve himself.

In an interview with the Spanish publication Marca last year, Frimpong mentioned that he might be interested in returning to Manchester City. It seems like he feels he has things he still wants to do there.

Frimpong mentioned that Pep Guardiola wasn’t really his coach. He only got to meet him a few times when he trained with the first-team. Despite spending almost ten years in Manchester City’s academy.

He expressed that it would be great to return, but he’s uncertain. Considering their recent Champions League win against Inter Milan last year and their status as the top team worldwide, he believes they’ll have to wait and see what unfolds in the future.

Let’s see what comes next for Jeremie Frimpong. A lot of important clubs want him, like Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal, and others. His choice could make a big difference in his football career. We’ll soon know which team he goes for and how he improves as a player.
