Bayern Munich announce the signing of Dayot Upamecano from RB Leipzig on a five-year deal, with the 22-year-old set to join the Bavarian giants in July.

Bayern Munich have confirmed that Dayot Upamecano will join the club from RB Leipzig in the summer transfer window.

The imposing Frenchman has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League over the past year, with Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea all credited with an interest.

However, Bayern's interest in Upamecano was well-documented, and the Champions League winners have now confirmed that the centre-back will make the move to Munich on July 1.

The Bavarian giants are believed to have triggered the 22-year-old's €42.5m (£38m) release clause, and he is poised to join Bayern on a five-year contract until the summer of 2026.

Speaking to the official Bayern Munich website, Board member for sport Hasan Salihamidzic said: "We're happy that we've been able to sign Dayot Upamecano for FC Bayern München. We're convinced that Dayot will be a very important member of our team in the coming years."

The signing of Upamecano could pave the way for David Alaba to leave the club, with the Real Madrid-linked Austrian's deal set to expire in the summer.

Upamecano has made 139 appearances for Leipzig across all competitions, including 26 during the 2020-21 campaign.
