Based on reports, the Red Devils wish to sign a left-footed player in order to bring balance into their squad, has urged them to shift their attention away from RB Leipzig’s defender.

According to



Manchester United

have decided to back down from competing against

Bayern Munich


RB Leipzig


Dayot Upamecano

after being informed that the defender is right-footed.

The 22-year-old eventually agreed to join Bayern Munich for a release clause of €42.5 million following his impressive run with Leipzig and helping them reach the Champions League semi-final last season.

Harry Maguire

and Victor Lindelof, who are currently occupying the Red Devils defense line are both right-footed and adding another right-footed defender did not seem like a good option for brining balance to the squad.

Therefore, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hopes to sign a left-footed player in the upcoming transfer season once

Phil Jones

leaves Old Trafford and

Axel Tuanzebe

moves to another club on a loan.
