Man Utd fans: Seeking Upamecano’s transfer was a big mistake

Dayot Upamecano

Manchester United fans think they dodged a bullet by not signing Dayot Upamecano after his horror showing against Liverpool in the Champions League on Tuesday.

The Red Devils were heavily linked with the RB Leipzig centre-back but they were beaten to him by Bayern Munich.

Frenchman Upamecano will join the German champions at the end of the season in a £37million deal.

Several Premier League clubs including Liverpool and United were linked with him.

However, his performance for Leipzig in their 2-0 defeat to Liverpool in the first-leg of their last-16 Champions League tie in Budapest had United fans thanking their lucky stars.

The 22-year-old’s positioning was awful and he was not much better on the ball and although he was not at direct fault for either Mo Salah’s or Sadio Mane’s goals, the France international looked far from a £37m player.

United fan Mark Goldbridge wrote: “Looking at it United might have dodged a bullet with Upamecano.”

John added: “Upamecano is weef man. Looks like Bambi on a football pitch.”

Jake wrote: “Upamecano is awful, what are Bayern thinking?”

And Paul quipped: “Only seen him a few times but Upamecano looks like a B-Tech Titus Bramble.”
