Chelsea join United in fight for Konate

RB Leipzig could lose their number one centre-back pairing in the same summer. Upamecano has already signed for Bayern Munich and now Chelsea and Man Utd want Ibrahima Konate.

RB Leipzig seems to be a stepping stone for players before they move on to bigger clubs. It has been that way for some years and it looks that will carry on.

Ibrahima Konate is the latest who could move on. 'Bild' reports that the Leipzig central defender is on Chelsea's radar. 

The cited media outlet also says that Chelsea will not find it easy to persuade RB Leipzig. With the sale of Upamecano, the German side will not let Konate go easily. 

His price will be around 45 million euros. That is his buyout clause, but Chelsea are the not only team interested. 

Man Utd want Konate to partner the most expensive defender ever in Harry Maguire.
