The ‘Bavarians’ do not get tired of adding victories, since a few days after becoming the second team in history to win a ‘sextet’, they now managed to steal a signing from Barcelona and Real Madrid. It is the star of Leipzig, as the Bayern Munich signed Dayot Upamecano.
They will cover the departure of David Alaba.
The reigning European champions want to continue to dominate soccer, so they will look to fill the gaps of the players who will be leaving next summer. One of them is defender David Alaba, who will go to the Real Madrid when this season ends.
The Madrid team has closed an agreement with the 28-year-old Austrian defender, who will arrive free after ending his relationship with the Bavarian team. That space was available until a few days ago, but it was covered now that the Bayern Munich signed Dayot Upamecano.

Upamecano was still under contract at Leipzig, but the Champions League champions paid his release clause amounting to 42.5 million euros. “I can confirm it, we are very happy”, commented Hasan Salihamidzic, Bayern sporting director.
What will you bring to the German club? According to his former partner, Jonathan Soriano: “I would highlight his power and speed. Upamecano can go very far. Rsponsor the prototype of a modern plant that is now being sought by plant, strength, forcefulness, because he plays easy, without frivolity “.

It will come when this season ends.
Because Alaba will be leaving the team until summer, Upamecano will do the sameor, giving more weapons for the following season to a team that currently seems to be invincible and that with this new reinforcement, that situation would be reaffirmed.
