Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool were all linked with Dayot Upamecano, but German champions Bayern Munich have pounced to secure the RB Leipzig defender ; the 22 year old has signed a five-year deal and will move to Munich on July 1.

Both Liverpool, Juventus and Chelsea had been linked with Dayot Upamecano one of the most sought defenders in the game but Beyern Munich have once again moved fast to get their man.

Financial details of the transfer were not provided but Beyern Munich triggered his release clause which is worth around 42.5 million euros ($51.50).

Manchester United will reportedly press ahead with a move for Sevilla's Jules Kounde during this summer's transfer window, having missed out on RB Leipzig's Dayot Upamecano to Beyern Munich.

A number of clubs, including United, were strongly linked with Upamecano, but Bayern Munich have confirmed that they are set to sign the France international at the end of the 2020/21 campaign.

The 20 time English champions will allegedly spend big on a new centre back this summer as head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seeks a long term partner for Harry Maguire.

The Red Devils have identified Kounde as their leading target, with the 22 year old again impressing for Sevilla during the current season.

The Frenchman, who joined Julen Lepetegui's side from Bordeaux in July 2019, has contributed three goals in 31 appearances for the Europa League winners this term.

Manchester United could face competition from Real Madrid for Kounde, though, with the Spanish champions said to view the defender as the ideal replacement for club captain Sergio Ramos.

Beyern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic said : "We're happy that we've been able to sign Dayot Upamecano for Beyern München. We're convinced that Dayot Upamecano will be a very important member of our team in the coming years."

Dayot Upamecano will spend the rest of the season with Leipzig who are second in the Bundesliga, four points behind Bayern who have a game in hand.

RB Leipzig chief executive Oliver Mintzlaff says Upamecano, who will line up for the German side in the Champions League against Liverpool this week, indicated he wanted to move on.

"Of course, we would have liked to keep Dayot Upamecano at RB Leipzig. However, Dayot indicated to us very fairly and in good time that he would like a new challenge this summer and take the next step," Mintzlaff said.

Dayot has been and remains an important factor in our success and FC Bayern can look forward to an outstanding footballer and great person.

Dayot Upamecano will replace David Alaba at Bayern, with the versatile defender out of contract at the club in the summer.

This could have been a massive signing to Manchester United to partnership but yet again Manchester United Scouts couldn't snapp the transfer. Like, share and Comment? And don't forget to Follow.
