Napoli are set to open talks with RB Leipzig over a deal for long-term Red Devils target Dayot Upamecano according to reports.
The Serie A side are on the lookout for defensive reinforcements and may be about to snap up a player linked with United and Barcelona throughout January.
The French centre-back has made 14 Bundesliga appearance for Leipzig this season, with a further four coming in the Europa League.
According to Radio CRC, Napoli sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli has called RB Leipzig to sound out on the availability of the 20-year-old.
It has been a fairly quiet deadline day for United so far, with Marouane Fellaini heading off to China to complete his Shandong Luneng switch.
Anthony Martial, meanwhile, signed a contract extension until June 2024.
United, therefore, are unlikely to make any approach for Upamecano before tonight’s 11pm deadline, leaving the door open for Napoli to pursue a deal.
