Man Utd-linked Upamecano admits to talks with other clubs despite RB Leipzig contract extension


Dayot Upamecano RB Leipzig 2019-20

RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecanohas admitted he is in discussions with other clubs despite only recently signing a contract extension.

Upamecano has established himself as one of Europe's top defensive prospects, with Manchester United, Arsenal and Real Madrid among a host of clubs reportedly interested.

The defender particularly caught the eye in his side's run to the Champions League semi-finals, with many praising his performance against Atletico Madrid in the quarter-final.

At the end of July,Leipzig extendedUpamecano's contract through to the summer of 2023 as they attempted to ward off interest in the highly-rated centre-back.

Speaking ahead of France's match against Sweden on Saturday,Upamecano has revealed that his recent extension with the Bundesliga outfit did not preclude him from discussinghis future with other teams.

"I have extended my contract with Leipzig," Upamecano said. "I am targeted by several clubs, I speak with clubs, but I have time. We will see what happens in the future."

Upamecanohas made a rapid rise since joining RB Leipzig from sister clubRed Bull Salzburg in 2017, and has said his tenacity has helped him reach a high level at a young age.

"The secret of my success? Keep my feet on the ground, no pressure, and my determination," the defender said. "I've had this determination since I was a kid and I want to keep working hard to reach the highest level possible."

France boss Didier Deschamps may opt to bringUpamecano along slowly with his side boastingseveral other strong options in defence, but the Leipzig star believes the experience with Les Bleus will only make him stronger.

"It's not easy to have this competition, but it's even better for my progress to work with great players like Raphael Varane, Presnel Kimpembe and Clement Lenglet who have experience and playeda lot of big matches.
