Paul Scholes urges Manchester United to sign Dayot Upamecano

Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes urges the Red Devils to move for RB Leipzig's Dayot Upamecano.

RB Leipzig centre-back Dayot Upamecano would be an ideal signing for Manchester United, according to the English club's former midfielder Paul Scholes.

The France international is widely expected to leave Leipzig during next summer's transfer window, and United are said to be firmly in the hunt for his services.

Upamecano could not prevent Leipzig from suffering a 5-0 defeat to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side in the Champions League on Wednesday night, but Scholes has urged the 20-time English champions to move for the 22-year-old in 2021.

"This is the type of defender I think United need, he's very different to [Harry] Maguire and [Victor] Lindelof," Scholes told BT Sport. "He absolutely loves one-on-ones, he loves getting down that channel because he knows he's gonna beat them. It's very much the same as what Rio [Ferdinand] used to do, what Jaap Stam used to do.

"It frees the rest of the team to worry about attacking play, because you know you've got a centre-half who is going to defend and he'll do it all day."

Upamecano, who has also been linked with Liverpool, will allegedly have a €42m (£38m) release clause in his contract next summer.
