Dayot Upamecano RB will not leave Leipzig in this transfer window despite the fact that he can leave for only £ 37.4m in the summer.
Manchester United have been a fan of the Frenchman for a long time, having come close to signing him when he was only 16 years old.
Since then, he has become one of the most sought-after young defensive players in the world and has attracted the attention of the European elite.
His € 42m buyout clause came into effect in Leipzig in June, and transfer coach Fabrizio Romano claimed that clubs made inquiries about his availability in this window, most likely with the aim of getting his move in a larger amount rather than joining the scramble to sign him at a later time. One of these will almost certainly be United as they look to reinforce their options at the center of defense.
Leipzig, however, refused to advance and were determined to keep him for the rest of the season even if that meant a smaller sum, Romano claims.
“Several clubs have asked Leipzig if an agreement can be reached in January,” the expert said. Watchman.
However, with Julian Nagelsmann’s team participating in the Bundesliga title race … and set to face Liverpool in the Round of 16 of the Champions League, they are not considering selling their defense hub midway through the season.
Several Premier League clubs are interested, including Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United, as well as Bayern.
“Leipzig has resigned from the 22-year-old’s departure in the summer and has a shortlist of potential alternatives, with Strasbourg player Mohamed Simacan among the top goals.”
