RB Leipzig CEO Oliver Mintzlaff says centre-back Dayot Upamecano will either sign a new contract at the club or be sold in the coming weeks.

The French defender, who has been heavily linked with Arsenal in the past, is out of contract next summer and Mintzlaff says there is no chance the Bundesliga side will risk letting him run down his deal. 

Upamecano will either sign a contract extension or leave, says RB Leipzig CEO

“Upa is an extremely important player for us and one of the most sought-after talents in his position,” Mintzlaff told Bild. “One thing we can assure you of is that we have a very clear understanding with him and his agent that he will not be allowed to leave for free.

“We can’t afford that as a club.

“There are two options for him – he will either sign a contract extension or leave.

“I’m sure that we will know relatively quickly in which direction it goes.”
