Man United keep a close eye on €60m-rated Frenchman

Man United are reportedly monitoring RB Leipzig pair Dayot Upamecano and Marcel Sabitzer. France international, joined RB Leipzig in 2017 from RB Salzburg in a transfer which cost the Bundesliga side only £9m. Elsewhere, Marcel teamed-up with Julian Nagelsmann’s side in 2014 from Rapid Vienna in a transfer worth only £1.8m.

Both footballers have seen their stock undergo a huge rise in recent times, especially after the duo played a major role in RB Leipzig’s hugely successful season last year which saw them reach the UCL semi-finals.


However, despite the pair being with their Bundesliga side for nearly a decade combined, the pair could be ready for transfers to the Norwegian manager’s Red Devils. Man United are casting a close eye over both footballers as the club continues to look for the top talents to add to their ranks.

Dayot has been linked with a move to Man United for quite some-time now which were recently intensified after the defender ‘liked’ a social media post linking him with a move to Man United. However, Aage Fjortoft’s claims that the Reds’ hierarchy are also keen on the French defender’s team-mate, Sabitzer, come somewhat out of the blue.

Marcel Sabitzer has featured in nearly 200 games in all tournaments for RB Leipzig and has been directly involved in an impressive 81 goals.
