Bayern sign Upamecano

The sporting director of the Bavarian club, Salihamidzic, announced: "I can confirm it and we are very happy at Bayern." He will sign until 2026. He will replace Alaba, on Madrid's agenda.


Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic gave an interview to Bild and released an informative bombshell. The manager of the Bavarian club has confirmed the signing of the central Upamecano. The defender was on the agenda of Manchester United, City, Liverpool and Chelsea, but finally it was the current world champion who has taken over the services of the Leipzig defender. “I can confirm it and we are very happy at Bayern. We had very good, intense and professional conversations with Dayot (Upamencano) and his agent Volker Struth for several months. "He will sign until 2026.

The French central defender had also been linked to Real Madrid. However, his termination clause amounted to 43 million, a figure that in the white club was considered excessive, so his signing was ruled out long ago. Precisely that amount is what Bayern seems to be spending to incorporate one of the best defenders in the Bundesliga. With this reinforcement, the German champion covers the vacancy of the Austrian Alaba, who will leave the club at the end of the season and could become one of Madrid's reinforcements.

This is how his colleague Angeliño defined him a few months ago in AS: “He's a beast. His physique is brutal, he takes the ball well from behind, takes risks and does it well. Melee is a beast and it is also fast. It is a very complete center. He can play well both in the defense of three and in the defense of four. ”
