A release clause integrated into his contract?

However, RB Leipzig could be open to a Christopher Nkunku departure next summer. Indeed, as revealed Bild , a release clause in the amount of €60 million would have been included in his contract. This would only be activated from the 2023 off-season. The sum, certainly substantial, is not in line with its value on the market, which is estimated according to the specialized site Transfermarkt at €80 million. It must be said that in 2021-2022, the French international has established himself as one of the best players on the planet with 20 goals and 14 assists in the Bundesliga as well as 11 achievements in the European Cups (Ligue des champions and Europa League).
