- RB Leipzig's Dayot Upamecano attracts the interest of half football Europe.
- FC Bayern Munich * should also consider transferring the French central defender.
- But there is a lot of competition from the Premier League and from AC Milan .
Update of March 25: Dayot Upamecano from RB Leipzig is one of the most sought-after defense jewels in Europe. And: The 21-year-old obviously wants to leave Leipzig in the summer . Sport Bild reports this with reference to the French adviser.
However, this wish could become a problem in times of the coronvirus . Upamecano still has a contract until 2021 . The RB plan was to let the young star go this summer, if a club pays the 60 million euros in its exit clause.
In the current corona crisis, many teams may find it difficult to pay such an amount. The Frenchman's desire for change, according to the report, could in turn put RB under pressure to let him go for less money. After all, summer 2020 is the last option for Leipzig to generate a transfer fee.
So Upamecano could be a bargain. That shouldn't detract from the interest of several top clubs. These include the FC Bayern , FC Barcelona, FC Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.
