Dayot Upamecano next club odds: Man Utd transfer price shortens after punters pile in

A very expensive deal that could drag on for ages and be near-impossible to pull off? Count Manchester United interested.

Man Utd RB Leipzig

Comments

Manchester United are said to be keen on RB Leipzig star Dayot Upamecano – but there’s a couple of problems. The Bundesliga side really, really don’t want to sell and he’s only just recently signed a new contract.

So, it’s perfect United-transfer rumour fodder then. Or is it? Our trusty traders have been forced to slash the odds on the classy French centre back heading to Old Trafford after a flurry of bets overnight.

The 21-year-old was as long as 7/1 to make that move, but he’s in to almost even money at the time of writing. However, Upamecano is still odds on to stay with Leipzig after an impressive showing in the Champions League knockout mini tournament.

We all know Bayern Munich like to hoover up the top talent in the Bundesliga so it’s probably no surprise that they’re lurking behind United as our second favourites to do a deal before the window closes next month.

Arsenal are maybe the surprise name on our list, given their seeming reluctance to spend big money on quality defenders, but we make them more likely than Manchester City who are the fourth favourites.

Spanish giants Real Madrid complete our list as they perhaps consider a long-term replacement for the all-conquering Sergio Ramos.
