Ever since breaking onto the European football scene in RB Leipzig’s progression to the semi-finals of the Champions League last season, Dayot Upamecano has been linked with transfers away more strongly than ever.
The rumours have persisted even before the 19/20 season ended, and they have now reached a fever pitch. It is true that the youngster is one of the best young defenders in the world. Moreover, he has the talent to make any defense in the world better.
Manchester United, Real Madrid and Liverpool are among the most heavily linked names with the Frenchman. Despite the efforts of all of the clubs to lure him away, the youngster has managed to stick around at his current club.
Discussing his future on the “Here We Go” podcast, transfer guru Fabrizio Romano welcomed BILD’s Christian Falk on episode 14. The duo talked about the future of the young centre-back and acknowledged his current dip in form as well.
He has been playing Champions League fixtures regularly and is visible to Europe’s top clubs regularly. The strengths and weaknesses in his game have hence, become increasingly prominent to those keeping tabs on the defender.
Bayern Munich will reportedly make a move for Upamecano in the summer of 2021, according to the two famous journalists. The Bavarians will, in all probability, be without Jerome Boateng and David Alaba next year and will need reinforcements at the back.
Considering their history of procuring the best talents in the league in all these years gone by, a possible approach would be of no surprise at all. The Bavarians actually tried signing him during his time at Salzburg, but the move did not go through.
A possible move could be on next summer, and many Premier League clubs have also been rumored to have the defender on their shortlist for the upcoming summer transfer window.
