RB Leipzig have no plans to sell Dayot Upamecano in the current transfer window amid the reported interest from Chelsea and Manchester United.

The centre-back has a £38m release clause which does not become active until June, but he has still been linked with a mid-season exit.

The likes of Chelsea, United and Bayern Munich have been credited with an interest, but Leipzig are unlikely to consider any offers.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Leipzig are prepared to determined to keep hold of Upamecano irrespective of the transfer offer on the table.

Upamecano has publicly stated that he has been in contact with other clubs and Romano claims that Leipzig may only consider his sale next summer.

The Frenchman has accumulated 134 appearances for the Bundesliga outfit since joining them from Red Bull Salzburg four years ago.

Aside from Upamecano, the club are also reluctant to consider any bids for Marcel Sabitzer this month despite his contract standoff.
