After nine years at the Etihad Stadium, Manchester City opted to let Jeremie Frimpong leave for Celtic in September 2019 for a fee of £350,000.
The Dutchman joined the City Football Academy in 2010, making many appearances in the youth divisions before electing to join Celtic’s senior squad.
Jeremie Frimpong, who has since transferred to Bayer Leverkusen, is demonstrating why he was at Manchester City in the first place…
After leaving Manchester City in 2019, Jeremie Frimpong is presently shining brightly.
Frimpong eventually departed Celtic for Bayer Leverkusen in January 2021 for a fee of £11 million, after winning three trophies in Glasgow.
The defender Manchester City traded for £350,000 is now one of the top talents on the planet, thanks to Xabi Alonso in Germany.
Frimpong has scored seven goals and provided nine assists in 21 games this season for the Spaniard.

Surprisingly, the Dutch international’s goal involvements have all come from right-back.
The 23-year-old has shown a stunning amount of offensive talent for a natural defender, which he undoubtedly picked up at the City Football Academy, which has produced other gems such as Phil Foden and Cole Palmer.
Frimpong appeared 41 times for Manchester City’s Under-18 team, six times for the Under-19s, and 21 times for the Under-21s.
In all of those games, the Amsterdam-born wonderkid only managed three goals and seven assists, indicating that his performance has improved dramatically under Alonso.
Pep Guardiola could use someone like Jeremie Frimpong.
The Etihad Stadium is continuously looking for replacements for key players like Vincent Kompany, Sergio Aguero, and David Silva.
Txiki Begiristain and his team are now looking for long-term successors for Kyle Walker, who is 33 years old, according to the Independent.
Reece James is thought to be the No. 1 target, but if Frimpong continues to produce at this level, he will undoubtedly be an asset to Guardiola at Manchester City.
Hopefully, the Dutchman can continue to shine in Germany, where Manchester City is already interested in players like Joshua Kimmich and Alphonso Davies, as well as Jamal Musiala and Florian Wirtz.
