Barcelona want Dayot Upamecano in £87million this summer

Spanish giants are worried Samuel Umtiti could leave for a new club this summer due to his bargain £52million release clause

BARCELONA are reportedly ready to offer £87million for Dayot Upamecano.

Telefoot claims the RB Leipzig star, also linked with Manchester United, could find himself at the Nou Camp this summer after two impressive seasons in Germany.

It’s said that Barcelona are growing increasingly worried about Samuel Umtiti’s future after he emerged as a key player this term.

Umtiti, another centre-back linked with the Red Devils, has a release clause of just £52million in his contract.

And Barca chiefs fear that interested parties will look to take advantage when the transfer window reopens.

And should Umtiti also leave, it would leave Barcelona desperately short on options at the back.

Fellow Frenchman Upamecano would plug the gap with ease after establishing himself as one of the best defenders in the Bundesliga.

And with age on his side, Upamecano has a great chance of developing into the world’s best.

However, United are also said to be interested and could end up hijacking the deal for themselves.
