Reports claim Man United have already identified perfect partner for Harry Maguire

Manchester United have reportedly viewed RB Leipzig centre-back Dayot Upamecano as the ideal partner for Harry Maguire for quite some time now.

Upamecano, 22, joined RB Leipzig in 2017 after making the switch from RB Salzburg in a deal worth just £9m, as per Transfermarkt.

Since making the move to the Bundesliga, the French defender has featured in 134 games during a period which has seen the 22-year-old emerge as one of Europe’s most highly-rated defenders.

Upamecano has a skill set, both technically and physically which is deemed perfect for the modern day centre-back.

The commanding defender is quick, powerful, strong and excellent on the ball, several traits desired among football’s biggest clubs.

With a contractual release clause of just £37m set to activate next summer, it has been widely reported that RB Leipzig are expecting several clubs to be fighting it out for the talented 22-year-old.

According to a recent report from AS, the list of potential suitors looking to secure Upamecano’s signature includes Bayern Munich, Liverpool, Real Madrid and United.

The outlet’s report claims that United’s interest in Upamecano stretches back the furthest with the Red Devils reportedly identifying the Frenchman as the ‘perfect’ partner for captain Maguire.

It is not yet known which club is the leading the charge to sign Upamecano, but hold on to your hats United fans, this one is set to drag on for quite some time yet.

    It’s not about a partner for Maguire it’s about who should REPLACE Maguire. He is slow and lacks vision. Just not good enough.

  2. Onukuye rabiu says:

    What is wrong with Maguire is good OK don’t talk about him again we are talking about defender that can partner him Bailey is dew but because of regular injury

  3. nature says:

    maguire should leave he is slow in turning and not quick i even not agree he should not be the captain

    • Eddy says:

      The way man utd strikers are playing currently, specially martial, we can’t be league contenders. Even the defence is too weak, and coincide goals. The coaches need to do something seriously and bench the guys who dnt perform. Ole favour same no performing players which is why the team is not good enough to challenge for the title race.

  4. Uche says:

    What if maguire is the problem, replace him instead of looking for a partner for him. He is just not good enough

  5. David Biggs says:

    Get Rashford on the left Diallo on the right Cavani down the middle,get Pogba and Fernandes to push forward,Bailly to partner Maguire,and Shaw must always play,plus Mctominay,we might just beat Arsenal.
