Upamecano Expected to Leave RB Leipzig in the Summer
Manchester United Among Clubs Interested
The Leipzig defender will be in high demand come the summer with his talents clear for all to see. This season, Upamecano has played a crucial role in his side’s pursuit of the Bundesliga title- combining with the rest of the team to conceded 12 goals in 15 games.
Julian Nagelsmann’s side boasts the best defensive record in the league and sit second, just one point away from leaders Bayern Munich. This season, more than ever, the Bundesliga is showing signs of its competitive nature which could see the end of Bayern dominance.
It is looking increasingly likely that Upamecano will remain a Leipzig player this month.
Leipzig Following Dortmund Transfer Trend
That trend, of course, sees young talent take first-team opportunities to improve to the world-class status before leaving to make the club profit. Dortmund have done it with the likes of Lewandowski, Mario Gotze and Christian Pulisic in the past.
Now, Leipzig seem to be following in their footsteps with Upamecano expected to leave this summer- making the club profit in the process. Perhaps it is a growing trend in the Bundesliga as a whole, as many clubs look to keep up on a financial level with Europe’s best.
