Real Madrid has a new target for next season. This time, the player is not for the midfield nor the attack, which is surprising.

According to the Spanish newspaper AS, the Merengues are getting prepared to duel with other big clubs, like Arsenal and Bayern Munich, to ensure the landing of RB Leipzig’s Dayot Upamecano in Madrid.

Upamecano is only 21 years old and is really standing out playing in the Bundesliga. He started his career in Valencienne, moving after to Austria, where he played for RB Salzburg. In 2017, he moved to the other RB team and has added a total of 104 matches for the Bulls. This season, Upamecano has already played 29 games, being part of a very strong Leipzig in the Bundesliga and also in the Champions League, until the stoppage due to the Covid-19.

For the French national team, the defender had played in all the basic categories, since U16, but has not yet been called up by Deschamps to the professional.

According to the publication, the team led by Zidane has considered activating the Frenchman’s release clause to bring him, once his contract goes until July 2021. And let’s be honest, Real Madrid’s defense is certainly not at the same level as the other sectors.

Apart from captain Sergio Ramos, that is a must, the most active player is Varane. However, the Frenchman has constant injuries and stays out for pretty much time. The other options are Nacho, who is not a defender but is placed there many times, and Militao, who really didn’t show anything worth the investment made on him.

For Upamecano, going to Real Madrid would be amazing. At first, he would probably stay on the bench, not being enough to substitute Varane in the team, but with time he can show that he deserves a place among the starters. Also, he will have 5 countrymen to help him adapt to life in Madrid. And maybe the fact that he is French will help Zidane to like him and actually give a chance to a young player.
