RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano has talked up a move to Barcelona, and Real Madrid and Manchester United.

Barcelona are one of several clubs regularly linked with the 19-year-old who has made his ambitions pretty clear.

“As a youngster, you dream of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester United, but to get there, you have to work,” he said.

”I’m very proud of myself, very happy. I have to keep going in the same direction. I have to aim higher. My preference for the moment is Leipzig. Afterwards, we’ll see.”
