Leipzig chief won’t rule out Upamecano & Mukiele sales

RB Leipzig chief executive Oliver Mintzlaff has refused to rule out selling Dayot Upamecano and Nordi Mukiele if ‘immoral’ offers arrive.

Upamecano, 21, caught the eye in Leipzig’s Champions League quarter-final win over Atletico Madrid last week.

Viewed as one of Europe’s best young centre-backs, Upamecano recently renewed his Leipzig contract until 2023.

His new deal includes a release clause of around €45m that will be valid from next summer.

Real Madrid are among the important clubs thinking about signing Upamecano next year.

And despite his new contract, Leipzig could be tempted into selling the Frenchman if a huge offer arrives.

In a lengthy interview with Sportbuzzer, Oliver Mintzlaff made it clear that any player can go for the right price.

“There is always a pain threshold,” said Mintzlaff. “If a completely immoral offer comes, we will have to think. But we do not expect that it will happen in this time of crisis.”

The question also related to Nordi Mukiele, Leipzig’s impressive young right-back.

Paris Saint-Germain are believed to be interested in Mukiele, 22, a €16m signing from Montpellier in 2018.
