Dayot Upamecano has already visited Manchester United’s training ground

Valenciennes defender Dayot Upamecano is certainly an in-demand teenager.

Manchester United’s pursuit of the teenager stems back to the January transfer window when a move was reportedly agreed but then fell through thanks to administrative problems.

Yesterday, we brought you a round-up of how the story has developed since January and writing an update on Upamecano’s situation, Get Football News France reported an interesting development:

“Manchester United were not going to give up though and were since confident of agreeing personal terms with the central defender, who has even been to Manchester to visit the Red Devils’ training facilities.”

Manchester City may have tried to come over the top and offer Upamecano a contract but it seems United are still a step ahead.

With personal terms already agreed and other reports suggesting Valenciennes and Man United have agreed a deal, the French youngster can’t do much else now apart from wait for confirmation of a move.

It’s been a messy transfer which has had lots of twists and turns which is somewhat strange for an academy player but the fact Upamecano is so in demand indicates he may well be a future star that nobody wants to miss out on.
