Real Madrid 'join the race for Dayot Upamecano'

Real Madrid join the hunt for RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano, according to a report.

Real Madrid are reportedly prepared to battle the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Barcelona for the signature of RB Leipzig centre-back Dayot Upamecano.

The 21-year-old, who is thought to have a £55m release clause in his contract, could allegedly hand in a transfer request this summer in a bid to force an exit.

Arsenal, Spurs and Barca have all been credited with an interest in the Frenchman, but according to AS, Madrid have also now joined the hunt.

Upamecano has made 29 appearances for Leipzig this season, including six Champions League outings.

Sergio Ramos's future at the Bernabeu is reportedly far from secure, while Los Blancos are also allegedly open to offloading Eder Militao during this summer's transfer window.

As a result, Zinedine Zidane's side, who are currently second to Barcelona in La Liga, could be in the market for at least one new centre-back ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.
