"We will sell top performers again if it makes financial sense and we can cope with it from a sporting point of view" said the club's CEO, Oliver Mintzlaff.

Dayot Upamecano

, one of Europe's top young players, is considered to be free to be transferred by the club.

's CEO says that the club will always consider selling its assets and will do that for the right price.

The team has seen many stars leaving the team, such as Timo Werner's switch to Chelsea.

The team is however is open to realistic offers.

Manchester United

, as an interested party, is more likely to wait until the transfer window opens in the summer.

Liverpool

also seems interested. However, Jurgen Klopp is unlikely to add any player from the transfer market although he has got long term injuries in the club. 

About the transfers, Mintzlaff said

: "We have a squad that is very broad in terms of quality.

"So we will sell top performers again if it makes financial sense and we can cope with it from a sporting point of view. 

"When I think of Werner, [Matheus] Cunha, [Naby] Keita or [Diego] Demme, we’ve already made a lot of money and still made progress in terms of the sporting side. 

"Overall, we have invested a lot in our team, no question about that. But look: the current squad had a market value of less than €250 million when the individual players made their debut.

"And if we now take the current market value, we are at around €550 million. You have to take this plus of over €300 million into account when you talk about investments. We are creating value with our path."

Upamecano also seems to be exiting the club as he has said before: "For the moment I am with Leipzig but it is true that I was able to talk with certain clubs.

He, however, added that he is focused on Leipzig at the moment.
