‘Oh My Days’ – Celtic Closing in on Huge Frimpong Windfall

It’s fair to say Jeremie Frimpong has done well for himself since leaving Celtic. The Dutch youngster of course signed for Bayer Leverkusen in a reported £11 million deal back in 2021.

A slice of that fee reportedly went to Man City after a high percentage sell on clause was inserted in the deal that took the youngster to Glasgow. It was a decent bit of business considering we signed the youngster for a relatively low fee.

It worked out well for all parties in the end as Celtic gave Jeremie a showcase for his talents. In turn his superb performances for the club contributed to us winning honours and landed him a big move to the Bundesliga, which both Celtic and Manchester City gained a decent profit from.

Jeremie has of course impressed in his short spell in the Bundesliga. His stats have been mighty impressive and bigger clubs are starting to take notice. That will come as no surprise to Celtic supporters, as we witnessed how special he was in his time at the club.

Those clubs rumoured to be interested are Man United, Barcelona and Bayern Munich. Man United’s interest being the most serious according to those in the know. Talk of bids in the region of £50 million have been banded about.

Celtic are reportedly due 30% of any profit Leverkusen make, that’s a massive amount. We could be talking about funds for a new player. Another example of the excellent work the guys behind the scenes do on the transfer front.

It’s only speculation at the moment. No one knows what exact fee he will go for, but one things for certain, he will go for big money, it’s a cert, and Celtic are going to benefit greatly. Oh my days.
