Goretzka to renew his contract with Bayern Munich

The German star will stay at Bayern Munich for another 5 years.

Goal confirmed that

Bayern Munich

midfielder Leon Goretzka has agreed to extend his contract with the team


While rumors were circulating that Goretzka had disagreed with Bayern and was approaching the club's exit doors, several Premier League teams, including Manchester United, were trying to sign the 26-year-old midfielder. Recent reports, however, suggest that the German star of Bayern will not leave the

Allianz Arena

and will remain in the team


Several sources have reported that Bayern have reached an agreement with Goretzka and a new contract will be signed soon. There are still details on which a final agreement has not been reached, but soon, this agreement will be signed by both parties


Goretzka's contract is expected to be extended until 2026 and he will receive a salary of between 12 and 15 million euros per year from Bayern. Despite recent rumors, Bayern Munich have always been confident of extending Goretzka's contract and were happy to have him on their team


Herbert Hainer, the club's president, said about Kimmich and Goretzka's renewal:

"They will certainly not be kept at any cost.

"The players know what they have at Bayern, they are paid very well here too, everyone gets their salary. And they can win titles with us now, and also in the future."

When Julian Nagelsmann asked about Goretzka's future, he said:

"Of course I have talked to him about my plans for him. I’ve told him I’d be happy if he extended and I'm also confident.

"There are several topics involved when it comes to discussing a contract extension.

"I’ll continue to focus on the sports side of things and show him he can be one of the most dangerous midfielders in Europe. He has potential to get even better."
