The French young defender is one of the biggest talents of European football. He currently plays for RB Leipzig, but he can easily leave the club this transfer window. In the Dayot Upamecano transfer odds, Manchester United are the favorites to sign him, but other clubs are also interested in him.
Dayot Upamecano joined his current club, RB Leipzig in 2017 from Red Bull Salzburg. In the last three years, he improved a lot and became one of the best defenders of the Bundesliga. After winning the U-17 European Championship with France in 2015, he made his debut in the senior team as well. He played this month in the Nations League game against Sweden and scored his first goal in the following game against Croatia. And even though Upamecano signed a new, three-year deal with Leipzig in the summer, top Premier League clubs still show their interest to sign him.
Dayot Upamecano transfer odds predict United move
Online sportsbooks in Germany offer the smallest odds, 2.925 for Manchester United to be Upamecano’s next club. RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann is confident that the French defender will stay at the club this season. But probably if United come up with a generous offer, he can leave the club earlier. He is a target of Solksjaer, who would love to sign someone next to Harry Maguire in the centre-back position. Upamecano can be a great replacement for Lindelof in the starting eleven.
But United are not the only English club who can get into the race for the defender. The Dayot Upamecano transfer odds also mention Arsenal and Manchester City as a possible new destination, with the odds of 7.00 and 10.00. The Gunners were keen on signing him last season, but they couldn’t agree on a deal then. Apparently their €60 million offer was rejected by Leipzig. They might try again with another offer, or just relying on their returning player, William Saliba instead. Manchester City are also looking for a defender to strengthen their backline. Though their main target is Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly, Upamecano can be a good choice as well.
Upamecano’s stay in the Bundesliga is a likely option too
Online gambling sites in Germany don’t forget about the biggest German club and the champions of Europe, Bayern Munich from the possible applicants. Their odds to sign Upamecano are 8.00. Many might say that Bayern’s squad is already complete and they are not in a need of another defender. With players like David Alaba, Jerome Boateng, and young talents such as Lucas Hernandez and Alphonso Davies there isn’t much space for the French. But certainly, things can change with some of them leaving the club. For now, though, Upamecano’s stay at Leipzig seems the most likely scenario unless an irresistible offer will be made for him.
