Christopher Nkunku according to Leipziger Volkszeitung will continue at RB Leipzig and will sign a contract extension.

Nkunku had a tremendous season registering 20 goals and 13 assists in a total of 34 games drawing attention from all over Europe. Real Madrid, Manchester United, and Bayern Munich were desperate for the 22-year-old.

The Leipzig star saw an increase in his paystub and his new contract offer comes with a release clause of €60 million, which will take action from the summer of 2023.

Cristopher Nkunku won’t leave according to Leipzig

The contract agreement confirms Nkunku’s present employers’ steadfast position on his future.

“We have clearly discussed it internally. We won’t let Nkunku leave this summer, we told him and his agent,” RB Leipzig director Oliver Mintzlaff stated in May.

The Frenchman has made the headlines many times this year and has an impeccable form that speaks for itself. As an advanced playmaker to the club, his presence on the field is a necessity for the club. In order for them to stay alive in the Bundesliga, they must retain players as such.

What the future holds for Christopher Nkunku

The alleged interest in the French international has impressed him. He’s flattered, though, by RB Leipzig’s willingness to keep him.

“It’s no secret there are clubs that are interested in me. Yes, it’s flattering. But it’s also flattering to have a club like Leipzig doing everything to keep me,”

he said, according to Telefoot.

“Here, we will have to think carefully and make a good decision. The World Cup is coming to life and this is a parameter to be taken into account.

he added.

Having adapted to the German league Nkunku is doing well for himself. Apart from that, he’s only 24 years old and joined Leipzig only 3 years ago. These factors won’t hurt him to stick to the same challenge for a few more years.
