Dayot Upamecano is unlikely to leave Bundesliga side RB Leipzig in the next transfer window because there will be no big-money moves in the market, according to his agent.

The France Under-21 international is reportedly a defender in demand, with Manchester United, Arsenal and Real Madrid all having been linked to his services.

German rival Bayern Munich was thought to be leading the race for his signature prior to the suspension of most domestic leagues in Europe as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

However, with the financial situations of several of European football's big hitters unclear due to the COVID-19 crisis, Upamecano's representative, Volker Struth, thinks his client will stay put for the time being.

Speaking to Sport 1, he said: "I don't believe in large transfers this summer and I think Upamecano is a player who will demand a large fee. 

"So the statement has already been made."
