United to lose long-term target as Bayern Munich make transfer claim

Published

Man United are on the verge of losing their top defensive target, Dayot Upamecano as German Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich seem to be ahead in his chase.

The Red Devils were linked with a move for defenders as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been told he needs to bring in another world-class defender that will pair Harry Maguire at Old Trafford.

RB Leipzig could be set to resign their fate of keeping defender Dayot Upamecano beyond this summer because of the several interests he is receiving from top clubs in Europe, having delivered an eye-catching performance.

Man United are yet to submit a concrete offer for the star defender and that could cost them with the Bundesliga giants already making big moves to win his chase.

English Premier League title holders, Liverpool have also shown interest in the player especially now that Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez has been injured and will be on the sideline for many weeks.

Bayern Munich chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has not hidden the wish of the club to sign the defender by stating that “We will of course deal with it, not only with this player but in principle with all the positions where we want and need to do something.”

Asked about a potential transfer agreement, Rummenigge added: “It’s too early for something like that, he’s still a Leipzig player at least until the end of the season.

“But it’s common knowledge that he has a clause in his contract.”

Meanwhile, Rummenigge dismissed claims that the club could cash in on Leroy Sane to fund the move.

“He has a five-year contract,” he said. “That would be nonsense. We need this type of player. Of course, he will stay with Bayern. And I am convinced: He will be a success here.”

Howbeit, Dayot Upamecano recently signed a new deal with RB Leipzig which makes his exit from the club a very difficult decision to make but if that is to happen, the Red will have to break the bank to be able to land him amid the financial downturn being experienced by clubs across the world.

Experienced legend, Danny Murphy has listed the six clubs he thinks can win the Champions League this season.

His list include title holders Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool. However, Manchester United was not mentioned.

Danny Murphy predicts English clubs could be a dominant force in Europe this campaign, with Chelsea hoping to defend the title they won after beating Manchester City in last season’s champions league final.

For Liverpool, they reached successive Champions League finals in 2018 and 2019 and would be eager to challenge for another this seasonn.

Danny Murphy insists Manchester City are one of the favorites as with Chelsea, Liverpool, Bayern Munich, PSG and Atletico Madrid.

Asked which teams he expects to challenge for the Champions League title, Murphy told MailSport:

“I personally think the winners will come from one of six – Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and PSG.

“Atletico are an outsider because Diego Simeone has matchwinners in Luis Suarez and Griezmann in addition to the remarkable team spirit he’s fostered.”

Rio Ferdinand, has said the Manchester United inexperience could stop themfrom winning the Champions League this season.

Man United manager has brought in Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane this summer, as he seeks to win his first title at Old Trafford.

However, the team have not won any silverware since the Europa League final in 2017.

Their rivals, Liverpool and Chelsea have won both the Premier League and Champions League while Manchester City have won last season’s fina, their third league title in four years under experienced coach Pep Guardiola.

“I think Man United’s not a problem, but where they’re behind the other three English teams, is the experience of winning things.

“All the other three English teams have won things, whether it be the Champions League or the Premier League. Man United have yet to do that as this group.

“That’s where they are lacking, and that’s where they’ve got to play catch up and they’ve got to do that this season. The transfer window for them has been impeccable, but that’s got to translate into trophies,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has lambasted his side following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on yesterday.

Manchester United began their Champions League campaign with a shock loss to Young Boys.

The Red Devil took the lead when Cristiano Ronaldo scored his third goal since he returned to Old Trafford.

Later on, the game turned around after Aaron Wan-Bissaka received a straight red card for his challenge on Christopher Martins.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has lay blames on his team following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on Tuesday.

The Switzerland side eventually drew level, thanks to Moumi Ngameleu’s strike.

The match should have been a draw but Lingard tried to find David de Gea but his pass found Theoson Siebatcheu.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has seriously warned his squad that they must learn from their mistakes if they are to avoid an early exit from the championship competition.

“A lack of concentration, you make a mistake and you get done. We did that last year, conceding two sloppy counter-attacks against Basaksehir and lost that game in the last seconds today.

“So we know we’ve given ourselves a more difficult task. We did last year when everyone thought we were through after two games.

“You need 10 or 12 points: win your home games and one away from home. We’ve lost the opportunity to get three points, but we’ve got two home games next and got to focus on those two,” Solskjaer said after the game.
