For the last three months or so, there’s been repeat claims from Germany of Tottenham Hotspur wanting to take Marcel Sabitzer in the next market.
The midfielder is currently one of the stars at RB Leipzig and his contract with them runs until 2022.
Last month, SportBild reported the German side are preparing themselves for the 26-year-old’s farewell in the summer.
Apart from the Austria international, reports have indicated Spurs are also looking at Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann, if they decide to cut ties with José Mourinho.
This week’s edition of SportBild has an interview with the player and they directly asked him whether he will be ‘moving to Tottenham with Nagelsmann in the summer?’
Responding to that, Sabitzer said: “I don’t know what Julian is up to. And I have to say: I have a contract until 2022, and not just until summer.
“It has become fashionable to ask the question on the future as soon as a player is in the last 18 months of their contract. But that doesn’t mean that everything has to be decided at that moment.”
Pressing further regarding a summer move, SportBild asked for clarification.
Sabitzer said: “My closest circle knows what thoughts I have within me. But I don’t have any stress: I feel good in Leipzig and in the club, and we’re successful too.”
The Austrian had earlier stressed it’s his desire to win trophies and that will be a crucial factor when deciding his future.
“Yes, but RB is not an unspectacular club. There are realistic chances of winning a title here, and there are people at work who really want to win something,” the midfielder stressed.
“That’s why Leipzig are already one of the great clubs. But RB doesn’t have to be the only great club in my life. I’m only 26.
“When a contract [is about to] expire and is to be extended, the question always arises: Will the two parties come together? But the salary is not my main focus right now.
“I’m well enough already, I don’t have to worry my head every day. I don’t play football to build a money store after my career, I play for success. I’ve always been a winner and I want to hold trophies.”
Sabitzer has six goals and six assists in all competitions this season for Leipzig.
