RB Leipzig are prepared to sell Amadou Haidara this month.

Sky Deutschland says RBL could sell Manchester United and Newcastle target Haidara for £46million in the January transfer window.

The 23-year-old Mali international has been linked with a move to the Premier League in the summer.

He could be sold before the end of the month as Leipzig will struggle to turn down a sizable offer for the midfielder.

Speaking about Haidara, journalist Phillip Hinze said: “I think it gets interesting with everything from £46m upwards.

"At some point it becomes indecent from the RB point of view, you're almost forced to accept that.

"But before that, Haidara will be left here in Leipzig at least until the summer, because he's a key anchor in midfield."

Haidara has a £33m release clause in his contract but that is not activated until the end of next season.
