The local Leipziger Volkszeitung reports that former RB captain Peter Gulacsi is also entertaining the notion of heading to America’s MLS in the coming January transfer window.

Reports that Swedish attacker Emil Forsberg of RB Leipzig may be headed to Leipzig’s sister New York club surfaced at the beginning of the week. Saxony’s “Leipziger Volkszeitung” now reports that the German club’s one-time #1 keeper and captain is considering following suit. Hungarian net-minder Peter Gulacsi – who shares an agent with the Swede – might also see his future in America’s MLS.
The 33-year-old effectively lost his starting place to back-up keeper Janis Blaswich following a long injury layoff. Gulacsi’s Hungarian compatriot Willi Orban now serves as the squad’s regular captain. RB trainer Marco Rose has started Gulacsi between the sticks twice in the DFB Pokal this season whilst Blaswich handled all 11 league starts.
The paper claims that Gulacsi – still under contract with the German Red Bulls through 2025 – is a “hot topic” with the MLS side. Forsberg and Gulacsi share a combined €10.5 million estimated market worth. Gulacsi – like Forsberg – has been with his current club since 2015, making a total of 283 appearances across all competitions.
