RB Leipzig will not sell Dominik Szoboszlai for anything less than his €70m exit clause, reports Bild.
This comes following the departure of Christopher Nkunku to Chelsea and Manchester City’s interest in Joško Gvardiol. Should the Croatian join Pep Guardiola’s side, who submitted an offer of €90m plus bonuses, then RB Leipzig don’t have a need to sell Szoboszlai in the current window.
That said, Szoboszlai does have a release clause of €70m, but there’s conflicting reports of when this expires. Sky Germany suggest that this clause runs until July 15, but Fabrizio Romano reports that this expires on June 30. Either way, unless a club bids €70m for Szoboszlai, he won’t be leaving in the current window should Gvardiol depart.
With interest from Newcastle United in Szoboszlai, the Hungarian was open to leaving Leipzig this summer but with their signing of Milan’s Sandro Tonali for a reported €70m, it’s unlikely that NUFC will launch a bid for Szoboszlai.
Szoboszlai (22) played an integral role for Leipzig last season with 23 goal contributions (10 goals, 13 assists) in 46 games across all competitions, helping the Saxony club to a DFB Pokal title.
