Manchester United dealt a blow to the pursuit of Bayern Munich midfielder – Man United News And Transfer News – .


Bayern Munich midfielder Leon Goretzka is in talks with the club to extend his contract.

With one year on his current contract, Manchester United are reportedly considering a transfer for the German midfielder in 2022.

According to Christian Falk (via BILD), United have offered him a higher salary than Bayern and see him as a possible replacement for Paul Pogba.

Goretzka has been offered 10 to 12 million euros by Bayern to extend his stay, but he is looking for a significant salary envelope of 20 million euros to match Leroy Sane’s salary, according to German media.

The club don’t want to lose their star man, but are reportedly unwilling to pay too much due to the player’s poor injury record.

However, according to Fabrizio Romano, Bayern president Herbert Hainer has confirmed the German club’s intention to keep Goretzka.

In an interview with German outlet Spox, he touched on the rumors surrounding the 26-year-old’s future.

“We are in good and constructive talks with Goretzka to extend the contract, ditto for Kimmich. Further talks can now take place. Hope we can find a solution. “

It would reiterate Manchester Evening News’ claim that a player’s agent once again used United’s name to get a better deal.

After signing Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane, the Red Devils are looking for a central midfielder.

Goretzka is expected to stay at Bayern and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will look for alternatives.

Five weeks before the transfer window, the hunt for the midfield is well and truly launched!
