Red Bull Salzburg player Szoboszlai is a hot topic at the moment. With the likes of Arsenal, Manchester United and Real Madrid all linked to the 20-year-old.
The Bavarians are interested in Szoboszlai’s service
Lothar Matthaus has suggested that Bayern Munich were showing an interest in Dominik Szoboszlai. A player he has described as a ‘gem’ who has been compared to the Hungarian great Ferenc Puskas. Red Bull Salzburg player Szoboszlai is a hot topic at the moment. With the likes of Arsenal, Manchester United and Real Madrid all linked to the 20-year-old. Bayern have a great feeling that every top club in Europe is following a player whose stock rose even more last week when he scored a superb solo goal to secure his spot in next summer’s European Championship. With the scores level heading at the time of injury, Szoboszlai picked up the ball in his half, drove at the Iceland defence before shooting into the bottom corner to seal the victory for Hungary.
Hungarians are comparing him with the legend Ferenc Puskas
Matthaus has ties to Hungary and Bayern Munich, coaching the former and played a large chunk of his career in the second, and he feels Szoboszlai is out of the top drawer. “He’s a gem,” Matthaus said in an interview. “He’s like Kai Havertz. He may move to RB Leipzig in January. But I am sure that every top club in Europe has aimed him, including FC Bayern Munich”. Bayern are not short of attacking talent, to which they added in the summer with the move of Leroy Sane from Manchester City. However, as European champions, Hansi Flick’s team will be well aware of the need to keep growing. And Szoboszlai seems to have enormous potential.
Szoboszlai is at the fledgeling stage in his career. Still, the Hungarians feel they have a lot of potential in their hands. With Matthaus noting that the nation believes he could be the successor to its most outstanding player, Real Madrid star legend Puskas. “In Hungary, Dominik is already being compared to the legend Ferenc Puskas,” said Matthaus. Comparisons with a player who won five league titles with Real Madrid. And was named the best player in the 1954 World Cup will only increase the pressure on the attacking midfielder. But if his goal against Iceland is somehow a barometer, then Szoboszlai looks capable of scaling the great heights in the game. Szoboszlai will have a chance to make a further impression on Sunday when his Hungary take on Serbia in UEFA Nations League action.
