RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann has retreated that Dayot Upamecano will stay for the upcoming season.
Even though the 21-year-old extended his contract in July, he was still linked with a move away from Red Bull Arena, particularly with his stellar performances in the Champions League final tournament in Lisbon.
Nagelsmann, however, feels certain that the centre-back will not be going anywhere at this point.
The RB Leipzig manger told ESPN “He will be here for the season. I’m sure about that,”
He also continued “As for the future, I’m not sure as he is very talented. Lots of club will want to buy – perhaps next season it could be real that he leaves the club. But this season he will stay.”
The French defender, who recently made his debut for France, has played 113 games for RB Leipzig, racking up three goals and two assists.
Currently, the defender is on an international duty with France as he got his first call up.
The 21-year-old scored last night as his country France defeated Croatia 4-2.
