Konate exit clause confirmed amid Liverpool links as RB Leipzig sweat on summer bids


Oliver Mintzlaff, global head of soccer at the Bundesliga club, admits that his side are being left open to advances in the next window

Ibrahima Konate continues to see a summer move to Liverpool mooted, with RB Leipzig's global head of soccer, Oliver Mintzlaff, confirming that there is a release clause in the defender's contract.

An ambitious Bundesliga side that suffered a heavy defeat to Borussia Dortmund in the DFB-Pokal final on Thursday are already preparing to bid farewell to Dayot Upamecano this summer - as he has a €42.5 million (£37m/$52m) agreement in place with Bayern Munich.

They are understandably reluctant to part with another promising French centre-half, but interest in talented 21-year-old Konate is building and Mintzlaff admits there is little he can do to prevent bids from being tabled.
