Manchester United will move for RB Leipzig centre-back Dayot Upamecano next summer, according to a report.

Manchester United have reportedly 'pledged their interest' in RB Leipzig's Dayot Upamecano and are ready to move for the central defender during next summer's transfer window.

Upamecano remained with his German club during the recent window despite speculation that a number of teams were interested in his services.

Next summer there will be a €45m (£39.9m) release clause in the 22-year-old's contract, though, and it is widely thought that the France international will be on the move ahead of the 2021-22 campaign.

According to Bild, United are ready to move for the central defender, but the Red Devils are expected to face intense competition for his signature.

The report claims that both Manchester City and Real Madrid are also keeping a close eye on developments as they consider making their own approaches in 2021.

Upamecano has already made 10 appearances for Leipzig this season and was a part of the team that suffered a 5-0 defeat to United in the Champions League last month.
