£52 million powerhouse advised ahead of possible Chelsea move this summer
Chelsea transfer target Dayot Upamecano should stay at RB Leipzig during the summer window, the defender has been told.
Now Look, There has been so much speculation and rumours in the media over the past few weeks about whom Frank Lampard will sign in the summer, to sort his dodgy back-line out, to improve that midfield area, and a possible striker to come in and help out Tammy Abraham
But there has also been constant rumours that we are interested, maybe even desperate, to sign up the impressive Upamecano, who is easily regarded as one of the finest young centre-backs in the game having helped RB become a very exciting, and entertaining to watch.
It is believed that we will make a summer move, it is believed that we will offer £52 million, and it is also believed that RB will say HELL no, ‘we want more’ as they rate the talent very highly, but still, we will make a move anyways.
But amid all the transfer speculation, Bayern Munich legend Lothar Matthaus has advised the centre-back to continue his development with the Bundesliga challengers: “I can see him playing for all the big club when he gets more experience,” Matthaus told Sky Sports in Germany.
“If he does leave, he needs to make sure his new coach or club gives him the confidence to play regularly – as he is doing at Leipzig.
“He’s a young player, highly rated, fast, has a good positional game and uses his body well for a 21-year-old. But a year or two in Leipzig would not hurt him.”
Upamecano is still very young and does not need to make that move to a big club just yet, so even though we are interested and keen to get a deal done, it probably is not the right time for the young man to move as the Premier League could end up breaking him.
