The center-back is one of the hottest hopes in the world after entering RB Leipzig’s first team.
He had been targeted by Man Utd in recent months to give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer more options in defense – but the Red Devils failed to bring new first-team center-backs into the transfer window.
FUNCTIONALITY: The ‘perfect’ Premier League XI of the season so far
Upamecano’s latest contract includes a £ 38million clause which becomes active at the end of this season.
This means that one of Europe’s elite teams can sign the 21-year-old for a relatively low price in time for the 2021/22 campaign.
And the Daily Mirror claim Man Utd have ‘kept tabs’ on Upamecano with Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain likely to be ‘at the head of the queue’.
The report adds that “their interest will only have intensified after their defensive struggles at the start of the season” with Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof coming in to bat so far this quarter.
Man Utd ‘have explored the possibility of landing Upamecano at the start of summer’ and now their ‘attention will turn to next summer’.
The center-back has a huge ‘desire to become the first choice for his country’ and the report adds that Upamencano demands that his next club play in the Champions League.
