RB Leipzig resigned to losing Chelsea, Man Utd & Liverpool target Upamecano

RB Leipzig are resigned to losing star defender Dayot Upamecano.

The Frenchman has emerged as a target for Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool and Bayern Munich.

Leipzing won't sell the 22-year-old this month, according to The Guardian, but they are less confident of keeping him in the summer.

Upamecano signed a new contract last year which will see his release clause change to £42m in the summer.

The fee is affordable for Europe's biggest clubs and Leipzig fully expect them to come for the France international.

Upamecano arrived at Leizpig from Red Bull Salzburg in 2017 and has played more than 80 league games for the German club.
