Despite consistent speculation over his future, Christopher Nkunku will reportedly stay at RB Leipzig for at least one more season.

According to Leipziger Volkszeitung's podcast 'Die Rückfallzieher', the highly-rated French international will extend his contract, which runs until 2024.

Per the Leipzig-based media outlet, Nkunku will be given a significant salary increase, and his new deal will include a release clause of €60 million, which will be active from the summer of 2023.

Nkunku is said to have attracted interest from numerous top clubs, including Real Madrid, Bayern München and Manchester United.
