Manchester United to prioritise a right-back in January with Jeremie Frimpong a target

Manchester United are to prioritise a right-back in January with Bayer Leverkusen defender Jeremie Frimpong a potential candidate.

Despite having an impressive season under Erik ten Hag, Diogo Dalot has struggled to find consistent form for Manchester United up until the last few months.

Dalot and Aaron Wan-Bissaka were often rotated under the previous regime, with neither player able to grab the shirt and keep it.

Now, according to journalist Florian Plettenberg, Manchester United are going to prioritise a right-back in the January transfer window, with Bayer Leverkusen defender Frimpong a potential candidate.
