Red Bull Salzburg boss Jesse Marsch will be losing his best player (again) during the January transfer window.
A year after losing Takumi Minamino (Liverpool), Erling Haaland (Dortmund), and Marin Pongracic (Wolfsburg) in January, Salzburg will reportedly sell Hungarian wizard Dominik Szoboszlai to brother club RB Leipzig.
UPDATE: RB Leipzig confirmed their signing of Szoboszlai on Thursday.

Szoboszlai, 20, has eight goals and 10 assists in 20 matches this season, including goals against Atletico Madrid and Lokomotiv Moscow in the UEFA Champions League.
The rapid left-sided midfielder, who can also play centrally, scored the decisive goal against Iceland to send Hungary to EURO 2020 (in 2021).
Dominik Szoboszlai to RB Leipzig, here we go! The decision has been made. The agreement with Salzburg is set to be completed – personal terms too. ⚪️🔴
Looks like tomorrow is ‘the day’. Szoboszlai and his agent are flying in Leipzig for medicals. More to come soon! #transfers
