Man United-linked Raum in line for RB Leipzig switch

Manchester United-linked Raum is in line to move elsewhere

Popular TSG 1899 Hoffenheim star David Raum is close to leaving the club, according to reports.

For those who aren’t aware, left-back Raum has been heavily instructed to leave Rhein-Neckar-Arena over the past two months.

This comes with the German international, who made his debut in the Bundesliga, after seeing his production catch the attention of a whole host of heavyweight players in European football.

The 2021/22 Bundesliga season saw Raum score three goals and 13 assists, establishing himself as one of the division’s most productive players on a large scale.

And one of these clubs understood that he took his place at the top of the list of admirers of a talented full-back, at one time, it was Manchester United.

Amid the Reds’ quest for reinforcements on the left, Raum was identified as a game-changing addition by the powers that be at Old Trafford.

However, bringing in Erik ten Hag to the club’s bench later shifted the focus elsewhere, with United, of course, eventually opting to bring in Terrell Malacia from Eredivisie giants Feyenoord.

The door, in turn, was opened for rival suitors to re-appear in the race for Raum’s services.

And now, as noted above, it appears that one of these teams is poised to tie a deal for the Germany international.

The club in question? RB Leipzig.

According to transport expert Fabrizio Romano, “direct contacts” began again between the respective councils in Leipzig and Hoffenheim on Friday.

It comes with an imminent termination of an agreement with Raum, with only the “final steps” to be sorted out after the signing of the personal terms of the contract earlier this week.
