Nkunku extends RB Leipzig contract amid Man Utd, Chelsea links

Christopher Nkunku has ended speculation regarding his future at RB Leipzig after penning a two-year contract extension.

Christopher Nkunku has signed a new deal with RB Leipzig, extending his deal with the club until 2026.

The two-year agreement for the France international comes amid recent reported transfer interest from a number of clubs, including Chelsea and Manchester United, but cements his immediate future to the Bundesliga side.

Signed from Paris Saint-Germain in 2019, Nkunku has excelled at Leipzig and broke a club record last season for most goal contributions in a single season with a direct hand in 54 goals.

Nkunku was also a part of the Leipzig side that won the club’s first-ever DFB-Pokal last season.

He has been one of the most versatile attackers in Europe last season.

Despite reported interest from elsewhere, Nkunku has committed his future to the German side and is targeting further honours.

He told the club’s official website:

“I’m pleased to continue wearing the RB Leipzig shirt. After our great achievement in winning the DFB-Pokal, it remained clear that my story here isn’t over yet – we want more!”

“I was really impressed with the club’s efforts to keep me, so a big thanks goes to those responsible for the trust in me and especially to [CEO] Oliver Mintzlaff, with whom I was always in close contact.

“RB Leipzig have made a name for themselves on the international stage in recent years and have repeatedly shown that we can compete for titles. We want to build on that going forward and go one step further.”

And it’s a great move for the French international to stay at Leipzig and improve his game to reach a higher level.

However, in a few years, he will be moving to Europe’s top five teams.

Real Madrid will be the best prospect for him, as Karim Benzema will be 37 and Madrid will look to replace him.

Leipzig begins the new season with a DFB Supercup clash against Bayern Munich on July 30, with the new Bundesliga campaign commencing away to Stuttgart on August 6.
