Red Devils and Man City are both in the battle to sign RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano. U21 France international is in high demand across Europe with Bayern Munich and major clubs in Spain all looking at signing the defender.
However, it is believed that the Norwegian manager and Pep Guardiola are also keen on bringing Dayot to Manchester with both coaches in the market for a defender this summer. His price could increase and become much more during the summer transfer window.
Upamecano has starred for RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga and the Champions League with the team pushing both Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund in the battle for the Bundesliga title.
The 21-year-old centre-back has been at the heart of RB Leipzig’s title charge as the team find themselves in third place five-points off top spot in the Bundesliga with nine games left to play.
Dayot reportedly has a release clause of £52.5m and is on the last year of his deal at RB Leipzig and could be on the move this summer with a host of clubs interested in signing the French centre-back.
