RB Leipzig’s defender Dayot Upamecano is one of the best young center-backs in the world currently. The Frenchman is a transfer target for top European clubs including Manchester United and Bayern Munich. Manchester United have been linked with the player last summer but the transfer did not proceed due to the huge transfer fee. Current Premier League champions Liverpool are also linked with Frenchman. Jurgen Klopp’s side are looking to sign one more center-back next season. Liverpool are without Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez due to injury and Joel Matip may leave the club next season.
According to reports, Bayern Munich are ready to pay the release clause of the France international. Romano has also reported that United are not in advanced talks with the player and interest from Paris Saint Germain has cooled off. Chelsea and Liverpool are still in pursuit of the player. Chelsea have signed Thiago Silva this season for free but are still looking to add one more center-back.
Bayern Munich are in talks with RB Leipzig for a possible deal next summer. Defender David Alaba is likely to leave next season as a free agent. Real Madrid, Manchester United, and Liverpool are linked with the Austrian. Alaba won the treble with Bayern last season and kept a clean sheet in the final playing as a makeshift center-back. World cup winner Jerome Boateng is likely to leave the club next season and the Bavarians will be without their two first-team center-backs.
Bayern Munich are top of the Bundesliga table with 7 points clear of second-placed RB Leipzig. The current Bundesliga champions have scored 58 goals in the league so far but have conceded 26 goals in 20 games. The defense needs to strengthen next season and Dayot Upamecano will be an excellent addition to the side.
