EPL: Centre-back Refuses To Rule Out Premier League Move Amidst Man United Transfer Rumours


RB Leipzig centre back Dayot Upamecano has refused to rule out a transfer out of his German club despite signing a new contract at the end of last season.

Manchester United are reportedly eyeing a move for the 21-year-old defender who told French news portal Telefoot that anything can happen in a football season when he was asked about a potential transfer.

French international Upamecano was linked with Arsenal, Bayern Munich and a lot of other clubs earlier this year before he penned a new deal at RB Leipzig at the end of a successful Champions League campaign.

The Frenchman was named in the Champions League team of the season for his outstanding performances in the colours of RB Leipzig whom he helped reach the semi-final of the competition for the first time.

RB Leipzig were eliminated in the last four by French giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG).

In his new contract at RB Leipzig, Dayot Upamecano has a €42m release clause for next summer.

Manchester United might not wait till next summer for the player with the Red Devils looking to sign a new centre back. A bid of €50m plus could be enough to prise him away from RB Leipzig this summer.
