sLeipzig CEO Oliver Mintzlaff has confirmed that negotiations with TSG 1899 Hoffenheim over the transfer of national player David Raum to Saxony are nearing completion. Basically, he’s still a TSG player. “But I can say that we are having good conversations and that we are at home,” Mintzlaff said on Saturday evening before the Super Cup match between RB Leipzig and German champions Bayern Munich on Saturday 1st. But nothing has been signed yet.
Sky TV and Bild reported on Friday that the two Bundesliga rivals had reached an agreement. The 24-year-old defender must have a contract with the cup winner from Leipzig valid until the end of June 2027. According to “Bild”, Leipzig’s left-back Angelino should switch to TSG. The Spaniard was not part of RB’s right-back team in the Super Cup against Bayern Munich.
Raum only switched from SpVgg Greuther Fürth to TSG a year ago. His contract with Hoffenheim runs until June 30, 2026. According to media reports, the transfer fee should be between 30 million and 35 million euros. The space was recently circulated as a potential arrival at Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund. In the summer, he was part of the permanent national team crew for national coach Hansi Flick.
