France defender issues one demand if Man Utd want to sign him
RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano has one demand if Man Utd want to sign him this summer, according to a report.
The centre back is one of the hottest prospects in the world after breaking into the first team at RB Leipzig.
He had been targeted by Man Utd in recent months to give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer more options in defence – but the Red Devils didn’t bring in any new first team centre-backs in the transfer window.

Upamecano’s latest contract includes a £38 million clause which becomes active at the end of this season.
That means one of Europe’s elite teams can sign the 21-year-old for a relatively low fee in time for the 2021/22 campaign.
And the Daily Mirror claims that Man Utd have ‘been keeping 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 following their early season defensive struggles’ with Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof coming in for stick so far this term.
Man Utd ‘explored the possibility of landing Upamecano early in the summer’ and now their ‘attention will turn to next summer’.
The centre-back has a huge ‘desire to become first-choice for his country’ and the report adds that Upamencano is demanding that his next club must be competing in the Champions League.
