Man Utd and Arsenal transfer blow as Atletico Madrid enter race for 21-year-old RB Leipzig starlet

MANCHESTER UNITED and Arsenal could be set to miss out on RB Leipzig’s talented youngster Dominik Szoboszlai.


La Liga giants Atletico Madrid have entered the race to sign the 21-year-old and reports suggest they could be in pole position.

AS reports United are a more likely Premier League destination than the Gunners if Szoboszlai does favour a move to England.


The North London club tried to bring him to the Emirates last year but he opted for a five-year deal in Germany instead.

Any renewed offer would need to trigger the player’s reported €60million (£51m) release clause.

Fit-again Szoboszlai is rumoured to be frustrated at a lack of playing time at Red Bull Arena.


The Hungarian made the move to the Bundesliga outfit from fellow Red Bull club Salzburg back in January.


But a long-term injury prevented him from appearing for his new employers until August this year.

Leipzig sit fifth in the German top flight and have a squad packed full of attacking talent.

Christopher Nkunku, Emil Forsberg and Dani Olmo are just a few of the names competing with Szoboszlai in midfield.


The playmaker has been likened to none other than Cristiano Ronaldo in terms of his physicality and eye for goal.

He has already notched six goals and three assists for Leipzig so far this season.
