Péter Gulácsi dismisses Borussia Dortmund rumours; happy at RB Leipzig

RB Leipzig goalkeeper Péter Gulácsi has responded to rumours suggesting that Borussia Dortmund will activate his release clause in the summer.

“I feel very much at home in Leipzig, including my family. It’s perfect,” Gulácsi told Kicker. “I can vey well imagine staying here for the long term.”

The 30-year-old has a contract with the Bundesliga side until 2023 but his agent, Hasan Cetinkaya, confirmed that Gulácsi has a release clause between €10m and €15m in his contract that will become active in the summer.

“I can confirm there is a clause in Peter’s contract and that it can be activated this summer. It’s very low, even in corona times,” Cetinkaya told Bild.

Borussia Dortmund want to replace Roman Bürki in the summer and have identified André Onana (Ajax), Odysseas Vlachodimos (Benfica) and Gulácsi for a transfer.

However, Onana has been banned from football for a year for a doping violation when he failed an out-of-competition drugs test in October. The 24-year-old will appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport against the suspension.
