Emil Forsberg: New York Red Bulls’ Record Signings and Historic Goals

RBL idol Emil Forsberg (32) left Leipzig for New York Red Bulls on December 19, 2023. The Swede, who played the second most competitive games for the Red Bull club from Germany, already has new goals. He wants to beat world champion Lionel Messi (36) and Inter Miami FC with New York in 2024. But who were New York’s record signings?

In mid-January, Emil Forsberg revealed after his last Bundesliga game at Werder Bremen (1-1). Skyhe will move to New York with his family.

Then the next Red Bull era begins for the Swede, who RBL maker Ralf Rangnick (65) brought from the Swedish top club Malmö FF to the 2nd league in Leipzig in January 2015.

2 historic goals

On May 8, 2016, Emil Forsberg shot Leipzig into the Bundesliga in a 2-0 win against Karlsruher SC.

He was also the RB club’s first Champions League goalscorer on September 13, 2017 against AS Monaco.

In the “farewell interview” with SPORT BILD (issue 52 / 2023), Forsberg said: “I want to move New York forward and win something with the club. (…) I’m really looking forward to the game against Messi. Nobody in the world is better than him, but of course I want to beat him.”

New York lost its only game so far against Inter Miami with Lionel Messi 2-0 in August 2023 – including a goal from the Argentine world champion.

New York Red Bulls finished the 2022/2023 Major League Soccer (MLS) season in North America in 8th place.

9.4 million euros

What is striking about the transfer history of New York Red Bulls: Big names were either brought in for little money because the stars in question were already at the peak of their careers, or they were signed for free.

Like the Barcelona professionals Thierry Henry and Rafa Marquez, who were signed in 2010. Juan Pablo Angel (came from Aston Villa) was also free in 2006.

The most expensive signing in NYRB history was the Argentinian-born Kakú from Hurracán, who cost 5.5 million euros in 2018.
