Celtic: Hoops could benefit from potential Jeremie Frimpong move

Celtic: Hoops could benefit from potential Jeremie Frimpong move -Celtic News

Celtic could receive a healthy injection of cash from Jeremie Frimpong’s mooted move to Bayern Munich. 

The lowdown

Peter Lawwell paid just under £350,000 to sign Frimpong from Manchester City back in September 2019.

Less than 18 months later, after he’d made 51 appearances for the club, Bayer Leverkusen tabled a successful £9.9million bid to bring him to the Bundesliga.

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.

From which academies did these Celtic players graduate? Let's get started... Joe Hart is a product of which club?

The latest

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.

The verdict

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.
