Manchester United continue to be linked with central defenders and once again the name of Dayot Upamecano is in the focus.
According to Sport Bild, Bayern Munich are interested in signing the French international but they could lose the battle to a Premier League side.
The renowned German outlet have claimed that the Les Bleus defender’s contract has a release clause of 45 million euros that will become active in the summer. However, at the moment, he is valued at 60 million euros (£54million).
Sport Bild claim that in the current circumstances, it is hard for the Bavarians to get serious for Upamecano unless the future of Alaba is resolved.
It is stated that the European champions are running out of time and interested clubs like Man United, Man City and Liverpool could fix the deal to sign the defender in winter.
The 22-year-old star had a fantastic last campaign with RB Leipzig under the management of Julian Nagelsmann and that is why top clubs are after him.
Upamecano was brilliant in the Champions League and helped his team reach the last four of the competition. He made his debut for the senior national side in September and so far, in 3 appearances, he has scored 1 goal for the World Champions.
Manchester United have conceded an average of 2 goals per game in the Premier League this term and they really need to strengthen their defense in the January transfer window.
In your view, should Ole Gunnar Solskjaer opt to splash £54million to secure the signing of Dayot Upamecano?
