Dayot Upamecano leaving RB Leipzig summer with Manchester United likeliest destination

With risen-to-prominence players crossing over to a more bigger club across transfer windows, it has become normal that Dayot Upamecano wants to leave RB Leipzig for a bigger challenge at Old Trafford.

The French International has eventually become one of the household names in the Bundesliga over the last three seasons with his transition happening on the increasing rate.

Season in-and-out Upamecano demonstrate a hidden aspect of his talent, causing eyebrows among European elite  clubs to battle for his signature.

The French’s chase from the major European leagues dates back to three years ago after Manchester United, Manchester City, Bayern Munich, PSG and Inter Milan opening moves to land Upamecano at the end of 2018-2019 season.

However, it seems the 22-year old would never leave the shores of the Red Bull Arena  resisting advances from interested parties since 2019 though RB Leipzig have partly played a role in Upamecano’s stay after the Bundesliga outfit fending off the French man’s sale.

Just last summer, Manchester United, City and Klopp’s Liverpool were heavily linked with a move for the tough defender but Leipzig were reportedly unwilling to sell their prize asset.

After three years of establishing himself as a devoted man at Leipzig, Upamecano’s days are numbered with a summer move away from the Red Bull Arena looming ahead of the defender according to latest reports.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano reveals in early hours of Thursday morning that Upamecano will be leaving Leipzig but not this January with a move to the Premier League the player’s likeliest destination.

When and which club of Upamecano’s departure are the two biggest questions making headlines in transfer talks of the French International. Both Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea are linked with the central defender but Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s side look favorites to land Upamecano further suggested by Romano’s claims.

Manchester United have been looking to land a central man to pair Harry Maguire in the heart of defense and while failing to do so in the last two transfer periods, next summer is the window Ole knee finally settling the score.

It is understood that United have penciled down Kalidou Koulibaly and Dayot Upamecamno but will consider the Leipzig star due easiness in situation.

They understood that Napoli will demand higher fee for Koulibaly despite the contract of the Senegalese coming to expiration at the end of this season with no contract talks with his Diego Armando Maradona Stadium (former San Paolo stadium) employers.

Having said that Leipzig are ready to sell Upamecano who have similar characteristics with Koulibaly and United are confident they will sign Upamecano in summer. That comes with Upamecano ready for a challenge at Old Trafford.

However, Bayern Munich will provide the Premier League outfit will stiffer competition after already discussed to attempt to sign Upamecano less than his €42.5 million release clause claimed by Fussball Transfers via Bavarianfootballworks.
