RB Leipzig captain Marcel Sabitzer has given his thoughts on speculation linking him with a move away from Red Bull Arena.

Along with RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann, Sabitzer has been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur, and when confronted with the ongoing rumors, the 26-year-old told Sport Bild:

"I don't know what Julian has in mind. And I have to say: I have a contract until 2022, and not just until the summer. It has become popular to ask players about his future as soon as he enters the final 18 months of his contract. But that doesn't mean that everything has to be decided at that moment."

"Those in my inner circle know what I'm thinking. But I'm not stressed about it. I feel good in Leipzig and at the club, plus we're successful.

"We have a realistic chance of winning titles here, and there are people at the club who really want to win something. That's why I see Leipzig as a great club. But RB don't have to be the only great club on my CV. After all, I'm only 26."

The Austrian international then went on to underline that money will not be the most important factor in his decision.

"Salary is not my main focus right now. I'm doing well enough, I don't have to worry about it every day. I don't play football to build a money bin after my career. I play for success. I've always been a winner, and I want to win trophies."
