United apparently offered £323,000, only to be told no by Valenciennes, who want closer to £500,000 plus add-ons.
Ridiculously, this is said to have put United off, leaving Arsenal and City as the main contenders for the youngster’s signature.
Upamecano has played for France at Under-16 and Under-17 level, mainly at centre-half.
