Celtic could receive a healthy injection of cash from Jeremie Frimpong’s mooted move to Bayern Munich.
Peter Lawwell paid just under £350,000 to sign Frimpong from Manchester City back in September 2019.
Frimpong, still only 21, has established himself as a mainstay for Die Werkself, starting 23 of their 24 league matches so far this season.
In all competitions, he’s played 31 times, scoring two goals and laying on eight assists.
And according to SPORT1, that form has caught the attention of league leaders Bayern Munich.
Julian Nagelsmann is apparently after a new right-back so he can move Benjamin Pavard into a central role, and Frimpong features on his list of targets.
The Herald’s Aidan Smith writes that Lawwell is ‘believed’ to have included a sell-on clause when Celtic sold Frimpong to Leverkusen.
If he joins Bayern, then, the Hoops are in line to receive a ‘significant’ cut.
Just how much money could Celtic stand to earn here?
Well, SPORT1’s report states that Leverkusen will demand at least €30million, which equates to £24.8million.
If the sell-on clause is 10%, then, they would bank just under £2.5million, and if it was 20%, nearly £5million could be coming their way.
Celtic will no doubt hope something of a bidding war develops for the hot prospect, with ‘heavyweights’ in England and Spain also said to be interested.
That £350,000 outlay three and a half years ago is looking more and more shrewd by the day.
In other news, this recent signing is already open to leaving Celtic.
