RB Leipzig’s young gun attracting eyes of European giants
RB Leipzig’s 19 year old French centre-back Dayot Upamecano is reportedly being tracked by the English giants for a January swoop as reported by Italian source Calcio Mercato.
The French youngster joined the Bundesliga outfit in January from RB Salzburg for a reported fee of just £8.8 million on a four and a half year deal .
It is reported that the Red Devils have been keeping tabs on the youngster for the past two years.
It’s not only Manchester United who are plotting a move there are other other elite clubs most notably Liverpool & AC Milan.
One problem remains which is his release-clause. The release clause which is set around £88million.While Manchester United have the power to out muscle the young centre-back’s other suitors financially but it is still clear that the price tag will be a bit of worry for a 19 year-old centre back though he helped RB Leipzig to finish runners up in the German top-flight but still the price tag is a bit high.
It will be a matter of time if Jose Mourinho really wants the French defender and to bolster his defence.
