Dayot Upamecano: “There were other options.”

Speaking exclusively to The Athletic, French defender Dayot Upamecano reveals that he had offers from other clubs before opting for Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.

“There were other options but they [Bayern Munich] had tracked me for a long time and I had good talks with the people in charge,” said Upamecano. “I believe it’s the best place for me to develop further.”

Bayern Munich announced the signing of 22-year-old Upamecano on a five-year contract in February. The Frenchman will join the club at the end of the season with RB Leipzig receiving a reported €42.5 million.
