Liverpool apparently leapfrog bitter competitors Manchester United in the race to sign RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano next summer.
Liverpool have actually apparently continued of bitter competitors Manchester United in the race to sign RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano next summer.
The extremely-rated 21-year-old was greatly linked with a move to Old Trafford during the recent transfer window, however United eventually put their interest on hold in order to pursue other targets.
Upamecano has a release provision in his contract at Leipzig which will allow him to leave the club for around ₤ 40m next summer, triggering a clamour for his signature in between a few of Europe’s leading teams.
Man United and Liverpool had actually been leading the race, however Spanish outlet Todofichajes declares that the Premier League champions have actually now relocated to the front of the line.
Both clubs have already yielded 11 goals in this season’s Premier League, with their defensive requirements being exposed as United delivered 6 goals and Liverpool 7 last time out.
Upamecano has became among the most desirable defensive players in Europe and he is extensively expected to leave the German outfit next year, in spite of only signing a new five-year deal with Leipzig in July.
Nevertheless, reports have actually recommended that he will only think about joining a Champions League club.
