Man Utd revive plans for RB Leipzig defender Upamecano

Manchester United are lining up a move for RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano.

The Telegraph says United have upped their interest in Upamecano after being humbled by Crystal Palace.

United have an interest in Upamecano, 21, but will need to offload some players before launching a move.

United have seven centre-backs on their books, including outcast Chris Smalling who is wanted by Inter Milan on a season-long loan.

Captain Harry Maguire's regular partner in the heart of defence is Swede Victor Lindelof but after he was partially at fault for all three of Palace's goals, the hunt for a long-term replacement is on.
