Chelsea transfer target Dayot Upamecano is ready to play for Bayern Munich, claims Former RB Leipzig coach Ralf Rangnick believes
Upamecano has become one of the most in-demand young defenders in the game right now and has been attracting interest from all the Premier League’s big clubs, with Frank Lampard reportedly interested
However, it seems that Bayern will now fancy their chances of getting a deal done, after France international Upamecano was recently backed to become a world-class star by current Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann and his former boss Rangnick believes he is good enough for the European and German champions.
Bayern are likely to lose David Alaba and Jerome Boateng at the end of the season and will have to invest in their back line. Asked if he believes he would excel in Bavaria, Rangnick told Sport1: “Why not? Bayern know this player well, you can assume that. Physically, Bayern saw that in direct duels: no one will run away from him.
“He might still have one or two risky balls too many in a game, but he will certainly learn in the next few years.
“I got to know Upa and his family over many years. They not only make decisions that sound good to them in terms of his image, but they also make decisions based on the feeling of what is best for the player himself.”
If Upamecano keeps on putting in the kind of performances that he has been over the last few seasons, it will be an easy decision for big clubs to make an offer, simply because the lad will be worth the money.
We would love the guy right here
