RB Leipzig have admitted that they will continue to sell their best players amid Liverpool interest in star centre-back Dayot Upamecano.
The 22-year-old Frenchman has established himself as one of Europe’s outstanding young defenders during his time at Leizpig, having arrived from sister club Salzburg in 2017.
He is reported to have been tracked by a number of top European clubs, including Liverpool and rivals Manchester United.
And Leizpig CEO Oliver Mintzlaff conceded: “We have a squad that is very broad in terms of quality. So we will sell top performers again if it makes financial sense and we can cope with it from a sporting point of view.
“When I think of Werner, [Matheus] Cunha, [Naby] Keita or [Diego] Demme, we’ve already made a lot of money and still made progress in terms of the sporting side.
“Overall, we have invested a lot in our team, no question about that. But look: the current squad had a market value of less than €250 million when the individual players made their debut.
“And if we now take the current market value, we are at around €550 million. You have to take this plus of over €300 million into account when you talk about investments. We are creating value with our path.”
