RB Leipzig defender Upamecano calm about Barcelona interest

RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano is flattered by interest from Barcelona.

However, the French youngster is in no rush to leave RBL.

He told beIn Sports: "I keep my head on my shoulders. I continue to work because I know that I have a lot to learn and to progress. I focus on my club.

"I get on well with everyone. For now, I'm here, not elsewhere. My family and my lawyer give me a lot of advice and I listen to them carefully. A championship that I appreciate more than another? No, not one in particular.

"I watch matches from other major leagues, whether in England, Spain or Italy. Now I am in Germany and it is going well. Do not forget that I just arrived in Leipzig so it's a little early to think of elsewhere."
