Dayot Upamecano RB Leipzig 2020-21

Bayern Munich have confirmed their interest in Dayot Upamecano but with several top Premier League clubs also considering a move, there will be no quick decision on his future.

Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea have all shown interest in the 22-year-old defender, andGoalandSpoxunderstand there is currently no clear front-runner in the race to sign him.

Upamecano is likely to leave RB Leipzig at the end of the season as he looks to take the next step in his career. Hewants to play for a club which can challenge regularly for the Champions League and where he can establish himself as a leader in the team.

Upamecano’s release clause stands at €45 million (£40m/$55m). He signed a new contract to 2023 only last year but Leipzig would accept a departure to bring in much-needed funds as clubs feel the strain from the coronavirus pandemic.

"I have extended my contract with Leipzig," Upamecano said at the time. "I am targeted by several clubs, I speak with clubs, but I have time. We will see what happens in the future."

Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann, himself linked with a move to the Premier League with Chelsea, admitted at the start of the season that he didn’t know if Upamecano would stay beyond the end of the 2020-21 campaign.

"He will be here for the season. I'm sure about that," Nagelsmann told ESPN . "As for the future, I'm not sure as he is very talented.

"Lots of clubs will want to buy - next season it could be real that he leaves the club. But this season he will stay."

Upamecano is two games away from a century of Bundesliga appearances for Leipzig, and made his senior international debut for France last year. He is increasingly regarded as one of the world’s most talented young defenders .
