Nkunku extends contract with Leipzig

Christopher Nkunku, a forward of the reigning FIFA World Cup champions France, has extended his contract with RB Leipzig. The new contract is expected to run until June 2026.

“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! (…) [we] have shown time and again that we can compete for titles,” Nkunku, 24, said in particular, the club's press service reported.

Christopher Nkunku joined RB Leipzig from PSG in summer 2019 and has amassed a total of 93 goal involvements in 134 competitive games. Last season, he broke Timo Werner’s club record for most goal involvements in a season when he had a direct hand in 54 goals and was also named the Bundesliga player of the season. Also, he helped the club win their first-ever DFB-Pokal trophy.
