Manchester United and Liverpool will go head to head for RB Leipzig centre-back Dayot Upamecano, according to a report.

Manchester United and Liverpool will reportedly go head to head for the signature of RB Leipzig centre-back Dayot Upamecano.

The 22-year-old is unlikely to be allowed to leave his German club this month, but there will be a €42m (£37.3m) release clause in play in the France international's contract during this summer's transfer window.

A number of clubs, including Chelsea and Bayern Munich, are said to be interested in signing the defender, who has featured on 137 occasions for Leipzig in all competitions since arriving from Red Bull Salzburg.

However, according to The Mirror, United will go head to head with bitter rivals Liverpool for Upamecano's signature later in 2021.

The report claims that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side want to find a long-term partner for club captain Harry Maguire and view the France international as the ideal acquisition.

Liverpool, meanwhile, allegedly regard Upamecano as the perfect player to operate alongside Virgil van Dijk at the heart of their defence moving forward.

The former Valenciennes youngster has scored once and provided one assist in 24 appearances for his Bundesliga side during the 2020-21 campaign.
