David Raum is all set to join RB Leipzig in the coming days. The move has been finalised between Hoffenheim and Leipzig and only the formalities need to be taken care of to complete it. There has been no change in the agreement between the two clubs.
Top clubs like Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund were expected to win the race for the left-back. But surprisingly, the DFB Pokal winners have been able to sign the player instead. He is expected to provide competition on the left side of the defense alongside Angelino.
David Raum to join RB Leipzig in the coming days
The Red Bull side have reportedly agreed a €35 million fee for the defender. They will be facing Bayern Munich in the DFL Supercup tomorrow as the season lifter, and will likely make the announcement after the weekend.
David Raum was called up to Hansi Flick’s Germany national team this past summer to play the Nations League. He was very impressive for Hoffenheim last season, scoring three goals and assisting 13 in the league. Hence, establishing himself as one of the best attacking full-backs in the Bundesliga.
Manchester City were also looking at Raum as a potential option, but have decided to go all-in for Marc Cucurella of Brighton. As a result, the Germany international will be soon unveiled as a Leipzig player.
