“There’s always rumours & speculation about good players for Manchester United,” Ole Gunnar Solksjaer said when asked about facing Man United target Dayot Upamecano in the Champions League encounter against RB Leipzig in the pre-match press conference.
“But since he’s playing against us, I know he’s a very good player so we can see him close up tomorrow.”
The Red Devils go up against last season semi-finalists RB Leipzig in their group stage round and could also serve as an avenue to keep up with young talent Dayot Upamecano at Old Trafford.
The 22-year-old has been linked with the Red Devils over the last few months, with several top clubs interested in the promising centre-back.
The Times recently gave an update that English club will make a move for the French international in 2021 with this fixture being an opportunity to savour his talent.
