Upamecano leaving?


By: Manu Tournoux

A Bayern Munich player since the summer of 2021, Dayot Upamecano is having a complicated time this season. A possible departure is mentioned.

After exploding under the colors of RB Leipzig, Dayot Upamecano caught the eye of Bayern Munich. The Bavarian giant decided to put more than forty-two million on the table to offer its services in July 2021. Since then, the French defender has established himself within the Munich central hinge. But since last January, his level has left something to be desired. And now rustles and rumors have emerged, particularly about what his coach might think. Enough to give Dayot Upamecano the desire to leave this summer?

If the trend is still far from going in this direction, The Team raised the subject this Friday in his columns. Mentioning this sudden drop in form which is starting to drag on, the sports daily focused on the player's position in the mind of Thomas Tuchel. Quoting a “ good connoisseur of the Bavarian locker room ”, the newspaper added: “ We had the feeling that Tuchel had a doubt and that he was just waiting for that to get it out. » And for several weeks, it is indeed the winter recruit, Eric Dier, who has passed the Frenchman in the hierarchy.

The English option

Suspended in the Champions League during the return match against Lazio, then on the bench in the Bundesliga during his team's last two outings, Dayot Upamecano has not played since March 1. Under contract until June 2026, the defender is therefore in the dark. But the announced departure of Thomas Tuchel at the end of the season could change the situation and will not push him to make any hasty decision.

According to the media, a departure from Bayern Munich is however “ not to be ruled out », especially since Dayot Upamecano's profile has everything it takes to interest potential candidates in the Premier League. At twenty-five years old, and after six and a half years spent in Austria and Germany, the powerful defender trained in Valenciennes could well be tempted by a new challenge.
