Report: Marcel Sabitzer Linked with Move to Tottenham


RB Leipzig captain Marcel Sabitzer may be on the move with English club Tottenham Hotspur appearing to be the destination. The report from Sport BILD states that current Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has been an admirer of the Austrian attacking midfielder and believes he can play a major role in the future of the Premier League club.

Sabitzer has been with Leipzig since 2014 after joining from Rapid Vienna. He played two seasons on loan with Red Bull Salzburg before becoming an essential part of the Bundesliga club's success. Since joining the club when they were in the second division, he has scored 46 goals in 207 appearances. He has also impressed enough to be given the captaincy of the club at the start of the current campaign.

"He has made a great development," said Sporting Director Markus Krosche. "It goes without saying that other clubs notice this. I don't like singling anyone out individually but Marcel Sabitzer has really developed well."

Sabitzer's contract will expire at the end of next season, making a summer move even more important for Leipzig to get the maximum transfer fee. What that could be may depend on the bidding war for the midfielder. While Tottenham appears to be the front runner, rumors of interest from Arsenal also linger. Either way, it appears that Sabitzer's time with Leipzig is quickly coming to an end.

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
