Upamecano pressures to be transferred this summer

first_imgHis current club can do little more than try to get the most out of the central herculean. The financial situation of Leipzig, despite having the backing of the powerful Red Bull, is not to throw rockets. Cannot guarantee wages of its more than 400 employees and of the players, who have also cut their salaries, beyond june. If the Bundesliga does not resume the matches in a short period of time, the situation will worsen further. Leipzig think of two substitutesLeipzig is a very jealous club when it comes to showing its accounts for its relationship with Red Bull, but the energy drinks company also owns the Austrian Salzburg, and will not cover large losses if they go on forever. Leipzig has become a German power trying to be self-sufficient and that includes the market. “We are not sellers, but we will have to sell“The club’s senior officials assume in private. They do not speak directly of Upamecano, but in Germany it is taken for granted and Markus Krösche, the sports director, has two possible substitutes in the room: Malang Sarr, from Nice, and Tanguy Kouassi, a pearl of PSG who is listening to proposals. Upamecano will end up leaving and Real Madrid is one of the strongest candidates to welcome you … Upamecano almost meets the parameters that the white club is also looking for, in terms of age (21 years), projection (it is Under-21 with France) and growth under the baton of Julian Nagelsmann, the prodigy technician of the Bundesliga. There is a narrow bridge to reach it (shares representatives with Toni Kroos), Madrid has Zizou’s appeal and a very French wardrobe, although above all the key lies in its contractual situation. He has neither wanted nor wants to renew with Leipzig and his current salary, just over € 2M, allows a lot of room for improvement despite the crisis. The fact that his current relationship with Leipzig ends in 2021 makes him in practice the owner of his destiny. Zidane is dumped on the French market and he especially likes Dayot Upamecano. As published by AS, the French center back from RB Leipzig is an option that is on his mind as the central quarter of the squad. And Upamecano is for sale. The defender contract ends in 2021 and as this newspaper could know, it is pressing so that they sell to him this summer. No matter the crisis caused by the coronavirus, think it’s time to jump into a big one. Upamecano, with the French U21.AFPlast_img read more
