Two more clubs in the race for Goretzka
Leon Goretzka could change hands next summer and can choose between two top clubs.An extension is obviously off the table.
The change-over poker around Leon Goretzka picks up speed again.
According to Sport Bild, the Schalker is to reject a transfer to the English giants Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United or Manchester City.A prolongation to Schalke, which allegedly offers him an annual salary of just under ten million euros, is also out of the question.
As the interest of Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain seems to have cooled off, the report states that only two clubs are still eligible for the 22-year-old: FC Barcelona and FC Bayern.
The German record-breaking champion is said to have reached an agreement with the midfielder in May and is still very interested.
However, Barca is now intermittent: As the successor of the aging Andres Iniesta (33) Goretzka has come into focus, the scouts of the Catalans are to observe the vice-captain of S04 intensively.Goretzka will probably opt for the sporting perspective, his contract expires at the end of June 2018.
Goretzka himself said on Tuesday evening on the ARD Sportschau television station that he was honoured by Schalkes interest in extending his stay with him.However, he was still in the middle of the decision-making process.
Christian Heidel has already set a time frame:”The matter will be resolved by the winter break at the latest, I assume,”said the Sports Director of Sport Bild.
