German giants Bayern Munich have agreed on terms to sign prolific defender Dayot Upamecano from RB Leipzig, sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic confirmed to the media.
The FIFA Club World Cup champions will be paying £37 million which is the release clause on the France international contract, who will then put pen to paper to sign a five-year deal with the World champions with real money online casino covering the players many options with odds for the fans willing to earn.
The 22-year-old French defender, who had played impressively for Leipzig, was heavily linked with a move for English giants Chelsea and Liverpool, but he ultimately chose to remain in the Bundesliga.
When the Bayern sporting director was asked if he could verify the reports claiming that the Bundesliga giants have won the race of signing Upamecano, Salihamidzic said to Bild: “I can do that, and we are very happy about it at FC Bayern.
“We had very good, intensive, and professional discussions with Dayot and his advisor Volker Struth for many months. We knew that we had very strong competition.
“Upamecano is a young player, 22, whose qualities have already developed extraordinarily. I was always convinced that we had presented a good concept.
“We presented him with our vision of his career at Bayern. During the past week in Doha, I had further talks with everyone involved. At the end of a long process, the players, family, and management were convinced that FC Bayern was the right club.
“Dayot Upamecano will play for Bayern for the next five years.”
The 22-year-old defender is currently tied to a contract with Leipzig till 2023 and his agent confirmed that there was a release clause included in his deal last month, which means that the Frenchman was likely to get a transfer move this summer and online pokies didn’t miss any of this.
The Bundesliga champions made it no secret of their wish to go after the French defender as Struth was discovered entering the club’s offices for negotiations last month. The World champions might be on course to parting ways with David Alaba on a free transfer in the coming summer, and this Upamecano deal was made to set up for the aftermath of that situation.
Struth also confirmed to the media that two Premier League clubs were interested in securing the services of the France international; they were reported to be Liverpool and Chelsea.
Bayern Munich’s relationship and history with Struth were claimed to have given them an edge against the other suitors interested in the French defender.
