Last season, Jeremie Frimpong’s offensive skills were highly relied upon by Bayer Leverkusen. The Netherlands right-back was a key contributor to Xabi Alonso’s dynamic Leverkusen team, scoring nine goals and dishing out eleven assists last campaign.

Now, with the marauding full-back attracting interest from a variety of top European sides, he has come out to showcase his desire to play for Real Madrid if the opportunity ever presented itself.

Frimpong adds fuel to the fire

Real Madrid have invariably been considered the cream of the crop for young players looking to make a name for themselves.

And Frimpong is a player that has been linked with a move to the Merengues in the past as a reinforcement at right-back.

In an interview with MARCA, the player spoke about a number of subjects related to the world of football and acknowledged the rumours tying him to a move to Real Madrid.

When asked if he would like to be Vinicius Jr.’s teammate one day, the 22-year-old answered with resounding optimism.

Yes, of course, I would love to. He is a great player. Who knows? Maybe one day,” he stated.

Vinicius has morphed into one of Europe’s most deadly wingers, and the prospect of pairing him with an offensive full-back like Frimpong is sure to be spine-tingling for Madridistas.

Real Madrid have lately been accused of not aptly recruiting for the right-back position, with Dani Carvajal, an aging veteran, currently handling the reigns. Backup choice Lucas Vazquez is also in his thirties.

If the Merengues decide to look in the market, Frimpong could prove to be an excellent buy, especially with the player already an admirer of Madrid’s star man.

The Dutchman’s ascent has been spectacular since he left the Manchester City academy in 2019. Now he has flourished as a ferocious wing-back under Xabi Alonso’s guidance and looks to be an avid admirer of Madrid.

Real Madrid pondered summer move for 18-year-old Dutch prodigy before his renewal

Real Madrid saw their priority centre-back target Leny Yoro sign for Premier League giants Manchester United this Thursday.

Even though the Merengues appeared to be in the driver’s seat as far as the race for his transfer was concerned, their reluctance to shell out the big bucks eventually led to Lille selling him to United.

It has left Real Madrid in limbo with regard to their plans for the centre-back signing. As things stand, the news coming from the club is that nobody will be signed unless a bargain option comes up.

Real Madrid considered signing Jorrel Hato

As far as some of the names on Real Madrid’s radars are concerned, Al-Nassr’s Aymeric Laporte is said to be on the agenda, with the Spaniard understood to be keen on a return to Europe.

Meanwhile, a report from AS states that Real Madrid also considered making a move for Ajax teenage prodigy Jorrel Hato but abandoned the idea after he signed a new contract.

Hato, who turned 18 in March this year, has already become a regular for Ajax, racking up 61 senior appearances despite his young age.

Like Yoro, he was also followed by Real Madrid as his contract was set to expire in 2025 and he fit the profile that the Spanish champions were looking for.

However, soon after he turned 18 in March, Ajax swiftly moved to hand him a new contract, securing his future until 2028. With that, Hato’s name was taken off the table at Real Madrid.

Another name that has been touted as an option is Union Berlin’s Diego Leite, who Real Madrid have watched in the past and could be available for €18 million.

As things stand, though, Real Madrid are calm about the situation and are counting on David Alaba to recover while also being prepared to rely on Aurelien Tchouameni as an option at centre-back.
