RB Leipzig’s Emil Forsberg has refrained from revealing details about his future at the Bundesliga club, particularly in light of reported links with MLS side the New York Red Bulls.
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano suggested that the 32-year-old was set to sign a four-year deal with the New York club earlier in the week.
However, Forsberg, an attacking midfielder who has spent over eight years with Leipzig, playing 318 matches and scoring 69 goals, opted not to comment on his future plans.
When asked about his future at the NHL (National Hockey League) Global Series in Stockholm, he said via Sky Sports journalist Ben Heckner: “No comment. I feel comfortable in Leipzig and love the city and the club.”
Emil Forsberg holds a status akin to a club legend at RB Leipzig. Since helping the club secure promotion from Bundesliga 2 in 2016, he has played a pivotal role in establishing Leipzig as a top side in the German top-flight and in European competitions.
If Forsberg were to depart, it would mark the conclusion of a highly successful era for both the Swedish international, whose contract expires in 2025, and RB Leipzig.
Emil Forsberg might feature for the Swedish national team on Sunday as they face Estonia in a Euro 2024 qualifier. Following the international break, he is expected to return for RB Leipzig’s upcoming match against Wolfsburg on November 25.
