Minttzlaff makes clear: “Nkunku will play next season”

Minttzlaff is willing to keep his power carriers at RB Leipzig if RB Leipzig should miss the renewed qualification for the Champions League. “We do not have many players who can rely on us in summer. We want to strengthen the team rather and not weaken,” explained the managing director on Sunday at “Sky 90”. This applies especially to Christopher Nkunku.

Nkunku leaves future open: “I do not close any doors”

The French offensive-all-rounder, with ten hits and nine templates Leipzig’s goal-threatening player in the current Bundesliga season, had opened his future in a “L’Equipe”, published on Saturday: “At the end of the season, I will be with the club, with my advisor and my family together and make a decision. ” This could also be the return to his home club Paris St. Germain, who had sold him to Leipzig for 13 million euros in 2019: “I would evaluate that as any other possibility. I conclude no doors.”

No exit clause in the contract until 2024

Minttzlaff, on the other hand, clearly realized that he will not give up the 24-year-old Nkunku, who does not have an exit clause in his until 2024 contracted contract: “He will play with us next season.” You can never be sure in football, so the restriction of the RB decision-maker, “but these are our planning.”

Olmo and Silva: The service providers should stay long

These considerations also belong to Tie Dani Olmo and André Silva to the club. “Nkunku, Olmo and Silva are very important pillars that can evolve with us,” says Mintzlaff. OLMOS Treaty also ends 2024, which only signed in the past summer of Eintracht Frankfurt Silva even signed until 2026.

Only Halstenberg’s contract expires in summer

This summer only ends only the Treaty of National Player Marcel Halstenberg, who was no minute because of a knee surgery this season was used and currently fighting for the connection. RB has signed the willingness to a renewed contract extension to the left-part, which came to the club in 2015. However, one still wants to wait, as the 30-year-old fits again after the injury break.
