Some members of the Manchester United hierarchy are reportedly in favour of putting the club's pursuit of Dayot Upamecano on hold for a year.
However, The Telegraph reports that the board are at odds over the plans for the centre-back, with some eager to pursue him this year and others in favour of waiting.
Those in the latter camp believe that, at 21, he will benefit from another season of first-team football in the Bundesliga before joining a club of United's size.
Upamecano also recently signed a new contract that will see his release clause drop to £40m next summer, making him a cheaper option in 12 months than the £53m it would take to sign him this year.
However, there would also likely be much more competition for his signature if he enjoys another standout campaign for RB Leipzig, increasing the chance of the Red Devils missing out on him altogether.
Upamecano made 38 appearances for Leipzig in all competitions last season, helping the German outfit into the semi-finals of the Champions League.
