The 20-year-old centre-back, who made his international debut for Germany earlier this month, is widely regarded as one of the Bundesliga's most talented young players. However, Freiburg president Fritz Keller believes a move to one of the aforementioned Premier League giants could be detrimental to his career - and that it's in his best interests to stay at the Mage Solar Stadion next season.
"In my opinion, [staying at Freiburg] is better for him than sitting on the bench at one of the big clubs," Keller was quoted as saying by the Mirror. “He has a long-term contract and for a player of his age it could be interesting to have another year of stability."
However, with Freiburg in danger of being relegated from the Bundesliga, plenty of top European clubs - including both Arsenal and United - will be confident of signing Ginter this summer. The 6ft 3in commanding centre-back may also believe that he is already good enough to play for one of the Premier League's big boys.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has identified Ginter as a potential star and wants the centre-back to become the Gunners' seventh German player, while Manchester United manager David Moyes is seeking a long-term replacement for the Inter Milan-bound centre-back Nemanja Vidic.
