But Leipzig have convinced him to prolong his Bundesliga adventure with a new two-year extension.
Upamecano has made 111 competitive appearances for Die Roten Bullen and is regarded as one of Europe’s best young defenders.
According to BILD, his new contract includes a €50m release clause.
The reasonable clause could lead to a similar situation to Timo Werner, who renewed his deal last summer then joined Chelsea a year later.
