RB Leipzig was apparently able to convince Emil Forsberg to extend his contract.
According to the Bild report, it has been agreed to extend the veteran’s contract for one season until 2026. In addition, the new worksheet should also include an option for another season.
On the way there, Leipzig had to fight hard. According to the report, Leipzig residents turned down many offers. Like many seasoned footballers, Forsberg appears to have also been targeted by the Saudi Professional League, according to Bild. There has also been palpable interest from Europe: Olympique Lyonnais and Ajax Amsterdam are said to have moved closer to Leipzig.
ÖFB Corps Club Xaver Schlager, Nicolas Seiwald and Christoph Baumgartner are convinced of the veteran. Coach Marco Rose is not innocent of the fact that Forsberg hasn’t given up despite his short playing time.
In the course of the upcoming extension, the super winner is said to have promised him more minutes. Forsberg has been playing for the Saxons for eight and a half years.
