Ex Bayern player, Lothar Mathaus, has urged RB Leipzig centre back, Dayot Upamecano, to forget a potential move to Chelsea or any top club and rather remain in Germany.

Upamecano is one of the few central defenders that have been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge, although that position is not the core of Frank Lampard’s key area to strengthen, as the Blues boss is more interested in signing a new striker and a left-back.

Speaking to Sky Germany about the talented 21 year old, Mathaus said: “I can see him playing for all the big clubs when he gets more experience.

“He’s a young player, highly rated, fast, has a good positional game and uses his body well for a 21-year-old. But a year or two in Leipzig would not hurt him.

“Leipzig are a top team. I can still see one or two per cent where he can learn, but he’s a huge player and that’s why I’m not surprised that top clubs in Europe are after him.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
