Konate set for Leipzig stay as Man United cool interest

Ibrahima Konate is almost certain to stay at RB Leipzig this season and could sign a contract extension.

The France under-21 international is one of the Bundesliga’s hottest defensive commodities after impressing for Leipzig.

And a host of prominent European clubs, including Manchester United, have been linked with a move for the 20-year-old.

However, according to Sky Sport in Germany, United and other suitors have cooled their interest in Konate.

They add that RB Leipzig plan a meeting as soon as possible to renew Konate’s contract.

Konate is under contract at the Red Bull Arena until 2023, but the Bundesliga high-flyers want to give him a new deal.

The 6’4″ tall central defender joined Leipzig from Sochaux on a free transfer in 2017.

Prior to a torn muscle fibre injury which sidelined him from October until the Bundesliga restart, he was a regular for Julian Nagelsmann’s side.
