The poker around Christopher Nkunku goes into the hot phase. According to information from the bild, there is said to have been a meeting of RB Leipzig with Nkunkus consultant Pini Zahavi. According to this, RB boss Oliver Mintzlaff renewed his statement that the attacker will continue to open for Leipzig in the coming season.
“Nkunku will play in Leipzig next season,” said the 46-year-old several times. Zahavi, who also advises Robert Lewandowski from FC Bayern Munich, had nothing to do with the current working paper of the French international, the mandate only took over later. To earn money with NKunku, it would need either a change or an extension at RB.
Inquiries from other clubs should not currently be available to the Saxons. Because there is no exit clause, there is an offer that was over 80 million euros, the tabloid reports. Even too much for the English clubs. The two top clubs from Manchester and Arsenal were repeatedly mentioned as interested parties. Paris Saint-Germain, who has also been often associated with his former youth player in the recent past, is also unsure.
The tendency goes accordingly towards the contract extension. The cup finalist’s plan is to extend the contract that expires in 2024 by one to two years, to increase the salary from around three to seven million euros and to integrate an exit clause in the range of 60 to 65 million euros, which applies from summer 2023.
