The general manager of RB Leipzig, Oliver Mintzlaff, opened the door to a possible transfer of the central defender Dayot upamecano after indicating that the Bundesliga club would consider selling their precious assets at a fair price.
Clubs Manchester United et de Liverpool were recently approached to enlist the French international, considered one of the best young players in Europe.
Julian Nagelsmann’s side have already seen several of their stars leave recently, such as Timo Werner’s € 50million transfer to Chelsea. And Upamecano could be the next to change tune.
The elite club have therefore indicated that they would be willing to listen to realistic offers for their central defender. General manager Oliver Mintzlaff told SportBild they would “sell the best players again if it made financial sense”, alerting some elite European clubs to bid for the France international.
Upamecano popular in England
Indeed, the 22-year-old is on Manchester United’s radar, Goal is able to say that the Red Devils would probably wait until summer to take a step rather than attempt to negotiate a transfer in January. Liverpool have also been mentioned as a potentially interested party, although Jurgen Klopp has previously indicated that the Reds are unlikely to dive into the transfer market during the winter window, despite long-lasting injuries to Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez.
The suggestion that Leipzig might aim to grab the attention of some European heavyweight clubs, with competition to sign the defender likely to be high.
In terms of possible costs, it has been reported that Upamecano, which is under contract with Leipzig until 2023, has a release clause of € 42 million, but which will only become active next summer.
And it’s not just Upamecano who will likely be in demand, with Mintzlaff’s message also applying to Marcel Sabitzer, whose name has been circulating at Tottenham and Arsenal lately.
