Nkunku’s release clause in his contract will be worth €60 million, as per Sky Germany.
The Frenchman will most certainly be the big subject of next summer’s transfer window when the clause kicks in.
Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and PSG were all reportedly interested in signing the 24-year-old this summer.
Last season, he managed 34 goal contributions in the league winning the Bundesliga Player of the Season award.
He also became the first player to win the Player of the Month award six times in one Bundesliga season.
He was destined to have his say eventually ✨
