Report: Szoboszlai Set to Join Leipzig in January


Dynamic Hungarian winger Dominik Szoboszlai has been rumored to make his transfer decision with the East German club RB Leipzig set to be the destination. The current Red Bull Salzburg winger has been much sought after by team such as AC Milan and Arsenal. However, Leipzig is now a destination following their win over Manchester United and current run in the Bundesliga that sees them contending with Bayern Munich for the title.
The move will cost Leipzig upwards of 25 million Euros according to The Guardian. It will be one of the team's largest transfers but could pay off massively in the coming years if Szoboszlai continues to evolve on the field. Currently only 20 years old, the Hungarian has proven to be a force in the Austrian Bundesliga and helped Salzburg retain their title last season. He has scored 16 goals in 54 total games and become an indispensable part of manager Jesse Marsch's team selection. 

The biggest news for Leipzig is that they were able to beat out bigger teams such as AC Milan, Arsenal and Bayern Munich to such a signing. It is a continuing trend that younger players are picking Leipzig over the usual continental giants and shows that players are comfortable with Red Bull's overall project in Germany. More than likely Szoboszlai won't remain with Leipzig long term. However, the move guarantees an even larger transfer fee, should the winger continue his upward trend in the coming years.

Leipzig have made no formal announcement of the transfer but expectations are that Szoboszlai and his team will make it official in the coming weeks. Such a transfer could be a shift in the balance of power and be what the team needs to continue their push for a first ever Bundesliga title.

The Unfortunate Vanzeir, Struber incident that has upset the fans, and league

photo by Matt Kremkau by Dan Feuerstein The Worst moment in New York Red Bulls/MetroStars history has finally come to a temporary conclusion. When I say a temporary conclusion, it means that Major League Soccer hasn't informed the masses of the punishment that would fit this horrible situation that graced the pitch at Red Bull Arena on Saturday night, April 8th against the San Jose Earthquakes. Here is the timeline of events that happened in that match as we try to piece together what all of us saw and how it all got started from beginning to end. In the 54th minute, another horrific challenge against the New York Red Bulls struck again as Judson delivered a two-footed mid-air challenge to the chest of Dylan Nealis and sadly all it got was a yellow card, Dylan's brother, and Captain Sean Nealis protested very loudly and earned his booking for his dissent of the referee's decision. While the arguments continued between Sean Nealis & Earthquakes representative Jeremy Ebob

Rumor: Dru Yearwood to be Traded to Nashville SC

What Red Bull will receive for such a trade remains to be seen. However expectations are that the move will be finalized by the end of next week. Yearwood joined New York in 2020 from Brentford in England. Along the way he has made 86 appearances for the club, including 55 starts. In 2021 and 2022 he made 18 starts, scoring three goals and three assists, his total output for the club in Major League Soccer.  In 2023 Yearwood found his position in the club to vary greatly. At times he played in a defensive midfield role next to Frankie Amaya and other times higher up the field, almost as a second forward. After the departure of Cristian Casseres Jr. earlier in the year, it appeared as if Yearwood's minutes would increase. However Daniel Edelman stepped into the role, relegating Yearwood to more
