There is a tendency with Christopher Nkunku



There is a tendency with Christopher Nkunku

The poker around Christopher Nkunku is in the hot phase. According to information from picture there is said to have been a meeting between RB Leipzig and Nkunku’s advisor Pini Zahavi. Accordingly, RB boss Oliver Mintzlaff has renewed his statement that the attacker will also play for Leipzig in the coming season.

“Nkunku will play in Leipzig next season,” said the 46-year-old several times recently. Zahavi, who also advises Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich, had nothing to do with the French international’s current working paper and only took over the mandate later. To make money with Nkunku it would take either a move or a renewal at RB.

However, the Saxons should not currently have any inquiries from other clubs. Because there is no exit clause, an offer of more than 80 million euros is needed, the tabloid reports. Apparently too much even for the English clubs. The two top clubs from Manchester and Arsenal FC were repeatedly mentioned as interested parties. Paris Saint-Germain, who have also often been linked to their former youth player in the recent past, are also unsure.

Accordingly, the trend is towards contract extensions. 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 will apply from summer 2023.

In 47 competitive games, Nkunku was directly involved in 50 goals. In the Bundesliga, the 24-year-old is in second place behind Robert Lewandowski (37) with 33 points. In 2019, the offensive player switched from Paris to RB Leipzig for a transfer fee of around 13 million euros. In March 2022 he made his debut for the France national team.
