Upamecano decision to be made in January with Manchester United keen on £40 million deal
A decision over the future of RB Leipzig centre-back and Manchester United target Dayot Upamecano is set to be made in January.
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.
United are heavily linked with a move to try and sign the powerhouse, as head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to bring in a central defender with pace to make up for Harry Maguire’s lack of mobility and has reportedly identified Upamecano as his priority target in this position.
Bayern Munich are unlikely to be involved in the bidding, however, with Sport Bild claiming that he is currently too expensive for the European champions, meaning that United have a very good opportunity to make a move.
According to the reports, Leipzig will make a decision over the future of their star man in the coming transfer window, and would even allow him to leave if their valuation is met by chasing clubs.
Amid all the speculation, Upamecano recently reportedly opened the door to a possible move to Old Trafford by failing to rule out a move to Manchester United, although he has said that his future is currently at Leipzig.
in a TV interview with Telefoot, He said: “For the moment I am with Leipzig but it is true that I was able to discuss with certain clubs.
“As I said, for now I am focused on Leipzig and I will continue to play for Leipzig. And then we’ll see.
“You never know what can happen in a football season.”
If United managed to secure a transfer deal for Upamecano, then he would be a brilliant signing for the club for now and the future.
So if there is even the slightest of chances to get a transfer deal done, Then United should pay that £54 million and try to get a transfer deal done.
As we said, he has all the attributes to be a real star for United.
