£52 million Upamecano has big transfer message for Chelsea boss Lampard
Chelsea target Dayot Upamecano says he will not decide on his future until the end of the season, as the Blues are tipped to seal a massive deal.
There has been alot of transfer speculation over the last few months since Frank Lampard arrived at the club and replaced Maurizio Sarri as coach, with many reports linking the former England International with a number of top-class signings.
Lampard was left fuming during the January window, WE ALL KNOW THAT, as he wanted to spend some serious money and bring in the type of world class players this side needs to get back inside the top four, get Champions League football and maybe win a bit of silverware.
And one player that has long been on the shopping listis that of Upamencano, who is easily regarded as one of the finest centre-backs in Europe right now after impressing season after season with German outfit RB Leipzig over the past few years, where his power and class have helped the German side into the knock-out stages of the Champions League.
But, despite all the speculation and rumours guys, Upamencano has done the professional thing and told us that he will not be thinking about a move away from Rb just yet, and, will wait until the end of the season before he decides his next move.
The French defender was quoted by the SUN as saying: “I feel very comfortable in Leipzig. I love my teammates, the staff and my club.
“At the moment I am still under contract until 2021. It is my duty to continue to train well and play my games. Even if I know that there are clubs that want me, I stay on the ground with both feet, that’s for sure.
“We will discuss my future with my advisors and my family at the end of the season. “But as I said, I’m in Leipzig and I want to achieve my goals with the club.
“I don’t feel like talking about anything else right now. I want to end the season with Leipzig in the best possible way and nothing else.”
