According to reports in the media today, Long-term Chelsea target target Dayot Upamecano wants to play in England.
Now Look, There has been so much speculation and rumours in the media over the past few weeks about whom Frank Lampard will sign in the summer, to sort his dodgy back-line out, to improve that midfield area, and a possible striker to come in and help out Tammy Abraham
But there has also been constant rumours that Chelsea are interested, maybe even desperate, to sign up the impressive Upamecano, who is easily regarded as one of the finest young centre-backs in the game having helped RB become a very exciting, and entertaining to watch.
It is believed that Chelsea will make a summer move, it is believed that Chelsea will offer £52 million, and it is also believed that RB will say HELL no, ‘we want more’ as they rate the talent very highly, but still, Chelsea will make a move anyways.
Now the Blues have been handed a real boost Spanish publication Sport have claim the RB Leipzig defender believes he’s better suited by Premier League football, and is keen to make the move to the English game in the coming transfer windows. Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United will welcome the claim about Upamecano, as they are all keen to try and get a transfer deal done.
Amid all the transfer speculation, Bayern Munich legend Lothar Matthaus recently advised the centre-back to continue his development with the Bundesliga challengers: “I can see him playing for all the big club when he gets more experience,” Matthaus told Sky Sports in Germany.
“If he does leave, he needs to make sure his new coach or club gives him the confidence to play regularly – as he is doing at Leipzig. “He’s a young player, highly rated, fast, has a good positional game and uses his body well for a 21-year-old. But a year or two in Leipzig would not hurt him.”
Upamecano is still very young and does not need to make that move to a big club just yet, so even though Chelsea are interested and keen to get a deal done, it probably is not the right time for the young man to move as the Premier League could end up breaking him.
