Leipzig will only sell Man United-linked Upamecano in January for ‘crazy’ bid

An update regarding RB Leipzig’s stance on Dayot Upamecano’s immediate future has come to light on Monday.

Leipzig will only sell Man United-linked Upamecano in January for ‘crazy’ bid

Man United linked with Upamecano

Dayot Upamecano, 21, has emerged as one of German football’s standout centre-halves over the last couple of seasons.

All told, the Frenchman has garnered 133 appearances across all competitions for RB Leipzig, including a number of impressive displays in the Champions League.

Such stellar form, despite his tender years, has understandably piqued the interest of several top clubs.

All of Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United and Bayern Munich have previously been named as parties interested in the stopper.

Of these clubs, though, it had long appeared to be Man United who had maintained the strongest interest in the Frenchman.

ESPN claimed back in August that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was targeting the centre-half to bolster his defensive options, as a partner for Harry Maguire.

Upamecano likely to stay put in January

However, if the latest word on the part of the reliable Fabrizio Romano is to be believed, then it is unlikely that Upamecano will be joining Man United, or any club for that matter, in January.

Romano claims that RB Leipzig are not open to selling the Frenchman this month.

Instead, Upamecano is expected to leave the club in the summer, when his €42m release clause becomes active:

Romano adds that Leipzig would only part ways with the stopper over the weeks ahead in the case of a ‘crazy’ bid being received:
