New Leipzig star reveals why he feels he made the ‘best decision’ in rejecting Milan and Arsenal

By Oliver Fisher -

Dominik Szoboszlai has shed some light on why he decided to join RB Leipzig over AC Milan in the winter transfer window.

Szoboszlai certainly attracted the interest of several big clubs during the post-lockdown era thanks to his performances for RB Salzburg. Milan were one of the teams that followed him closely, with Rangnick keen on the signing.

As per The Athletic, the playmaker joined the Bundesliga side for an initial fee of €20m, and they have beaten competition from Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Milan, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur to secure his signature.

He has signed a four-and-a-half-year contract until 2025, and the report adds that there is 20 per cent sell-on clause which applies to the entire fee of a future transfer and not just the profit.

Szoboszlai has once again spoken out about why he decided to make the switch to Germany rather than embark on an exciting project with Milan.

“I made the best decision for the future of my career. In Salzburg the style of play was very similar, so I hope it doesn’t take a lot of time to integrate and play,” he said (via MilanLive).

“I will give my all to be a starter as soon as possible, I know I can be deployed in different positions. I can play as a midfielder, winger, attacking midfielder or striker.”
