Man United Keeping Tabs With €60m-Rated Bundesliga Centre-Back
The agent of RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano has suggested his future could lie in the PL amid transfer talks linking him with Man United, Chelsea and Liverpool. The 22-year-old centre-back is one of the promising teenagers in Europe at the moment and is sure to attract plenty of interest in the near future as a big move surely beckons……Man United Keeping Tabs With €60m-Rated Bundesliga Centre-Back
Chelsea and Liverpool could be among the suitors for Dayot in the summer, and his agent has now fuelled this talks. Upamecano’s representative has said the centre-back will soon choose between a move to Bayern Munich or two top PL teams, with the teenager ready to be available for only £38m in the summer.
The report mentions Red Devils alongside Chelsea and Liverpool, so it stays to be seen which club will be showing the strongest interest. Red Devils could definitely do with a better partner for Harry Maguire after Victor Lindelof’s unconvincing form and Eric Bailly’s patchy injury record.
Chelsea, meanwhile, would surely see France international as an ideal long-term replacement for veteran defender Thiago Silva, and an upgrade on the likes of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen, with new coach Thomas Tuchel likely to know the player well from his time managing in the Bundesliga.
The Reds also urgently need to bolster at the back after this difficult season with injuries, and the French centre-back could be a more reliable long-term option alongside Virgil than injury-prone pair Joel Matip and Joe Gomez. Given the success of their signing of Cavani, Red Devils could perhaps also do well to pounce for Ramos on a free transfer.
