Bayern to sign Upamecano in June
Football Transfer Centre

Bayern Munich have confirmed that they have reached an agreement with RB Leipzig to sign Dayot Upamecano this summer.

The Frenchman has been the subject of transfer speculation in recent months with Chelsea and Liverpool among the clubs interested in him.

However, Bayern were always leading the pursuit after making contact with his agent and they have now officially agreed a deal with Leipzig.

The Bavarian giants will trigger the £38m release clause in the centre-back's deal which will become active at the beginning of June.

Upamecano is likely to partner Niklas Sule in the central defence next term with both David Alaba and Jerome Boateng heading for the exit door.

Alaba is unlikely to sign a new deal beyond June 30 after a breakdown in contract talks while Bayern are yet to negotiate with Boateng.

The German is in a similar contract situation and Bayern seem prepared to let him go with the expected summer arrival of Upamecano.
