Real Madrid in next season with David Alaba and Dayot Upamecano as a tandem of central defenders Legendary Guti fired at his Real Madrid last night, pointing out that the Royal Club needs Kylian Mbappe, Erling Haaland and five other players in order for the team to have enough quality and depth next season, and an interesting transfer of rumors appeared the day after the former midfielder's statements.
and is transmitted by the German Bild. Namely, the Spanish giant turned a blind eye to the talented defender Dayot Upamecano. Last summer, they took the player from the Bavarians, David Alaba, without compensation, and now he seems to be aiming for a new defender who would significantly increase the competition in the central part of the defense.
Namely, Alaba is inviolable here, Eder Militao is absolutely standard for the first time, Nacho would serve as an assistant, and Upamecano would fight equally for the starting lineup. At the same time, Carlo Ancelotti or whoever is sitting on the Real bench next season would have a significant rotation for the fight on several fronts, which is undoubtedly waiting for Madrid.
In that case, Alaba could, if necessary, be used on the left side, but also in the position of the defensive midfielder. According to Bild's information, Bayern will certainly not easily give up the third most expensive reinforcement in the history of the club, which paid 41,500,000 euros to Leipzig last summer.
Nagelsman on Upamecano
Although the member of the French national team (he made his debut in September 2020 and recorded six appearances) has not yet reached the highest level of the game expected of him, Julian Nagelsmann in the German media does not stop repeating that Upamecano is a guy of brilliant potential.
However, lately, Nagelsman's criticism of Upamecano has not been absent, two months ago in the 4: 1 victory over Hertha, when the Frenchman was the culprit for the only goal. According to the young expert, the young defender was the culprit for the goal with a risky pass.
"He is in too much of a hurry to make decisions with the ball. His style of play is too hectic because he is used to Leipzig's football at 120 kilometers per hour and fails to get it out of his head. "He will have to improve, because Tanguy Nianzou waits for the opportunity" said Nagelsman.
Tanguy Nianzou got the opportunity to play the whole 90 minutes against Union Berlin, but not instead of Upamecao, but he formed a tandem with him in the 4-0 victory. Bayern currently have four defenders at their disposal because Lucas Hernandez and Niklas Sule are still there, but as the German leaves the club at the end of the season and goes to Dortmund as a free agent, Bayern's eventual release of Upamecano would put the club in the current situation.
