RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann has played down speculation that Marcel Sabitzer has expressed desire to leave the club this summer.

"Nothing is certain about 'Sabi' yet, neither in one direction nor the other," Nagelsmann told Bild.

"His contract with us runs until 2022. It's normal that many clubs are looking at him."

Just yesterday, Bild reported that Sabitzer has said he wants to leave at the end of the season after informing the club that he will not be extending his contract.

Tottenham, Liverpool and Manchester United are being linked with the 27-year-old RB Leipzig captain, who has scored seven goals and made six assists in 31 games this season.
