Man United and Chelsea target Christopher Nkunku signs new deal

RB Leipzig forward Christopher Nkunku has signed a new deal with the Bundesliga club. 

The Frenchman has been linked with Premier League clubs, Chelsea and Manchester United, following an impressive 2021/22 season. 

The 24-year-old hit 35 goals and registered 19 assists in 50 appearances last season to notify Europe's best clubs. 

He seems keen on continuing with his rise in German's top flight after he put pen to paper on a new four-year deal. 

"I'm pleased to continue wearing the RB Leipzig shirt. After our great achievement in winning the DFB Cup, it remained clear that my story here isn't over yet - we want more," Nkunku told the Leipzig website.

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

The 24-year-old arrived at Leipzig in July 2019 from boyhood club Paris Saint-Germain. He soon became a mainstay in the team, able to operate in attacking midfield, on either flank or even as a striker.

To date he has made 136 competitive outings for the club, contributing 47 goals as part of 93 direct goal involvements.
