Today a tweet broke that seems to further confirm the story written by Bavarian Football Works, Bayern Munich have held advanced talks regarding RB Leipzig’s star RB, Dayot Upamecano. In that “secret meeting”, Bayern brass met with the agents of Upamecano. It was a report that lacked anything more than speculation and was worth being taken with a grain or two of salt. However, new news has added more light to that particular event.

That secret meeting was recently confirmed via Sky Sport’s Max Bielefeld, where Hasan Salihamdizic stated that they had in fact met with the agents of Dayot Upamecano.

This is important for a number of reasons, the first one being that there is now official confirmation from one of the higher-ups of FC Bayern of advanced staged talks. While CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge confirmed interest in Upamecano, the statement regarding advanced talks with Upamecano’s agents makes a potential move for Dayot to FC Bayern even more likely.
