Solskjaer told to ‘stop dithering’ and bring brilliant £54 million star to Manchester United
Ian Wright has urged Manchester United to stop ‘dithering’ and sign Dayot Upamecano this summer window.
The talented Frenchman made his debut for Les Bleus earlier in the season, after a stunning season with RB which led to him becoming one of the most sought after defenders in the game.
Upamecano recently revealed he held talks about a potential move away from the Bundesliga before eventually committing himself to a new three-year contract at Leipzig in July, but that has not stopped speculation that United are keen to wrap up a move.
And Talking on The Kelly & Wrighty Show, Wright said United should move for Upamecano despite his new deal: “Upamecano, 21 years old, he’s probably desperate to go somewhere like Manchester United,” Wright said. “Why aren’t they doing that deal? Especially when you watch how Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof played the other day.
“We know that the goalkeeper [is struggling]. I think Dean Henderson coming in there is not going to help David de Gea.
“I think it’s going to put him under pressure knowing that there’s somebody who’s going to cause him problems, and I think we’re going to see more mistakes out of him.
“But why aren’t they doing that deal [for Upamecano]? Why aren’t they going and doing the deal? Why aren’t they doing the Jadon Sancho deal? They are dithering, and what’s going to happen is they are going to get caught up and passed.”
There is plenty of time for United to make a move and sign the young man, but they should also have the money to meet that £54 million release clause.
If they get him, fans will be happy, if they dont, well it could be a frustrating season for the club.
