FC Bayern has special plans with Goretzka and Süle
After almost endless, but ultimately unsuccessful negotiations for an extension of the contract, FC Bayern Munich has to realise that in David Alaba a performer can leave the club at zero rate at the end of the current season. A circumstance that sports director Hasan Salihamidzic openly called “super-gau” and
which is apparently a lesson to the German record champion. Based on the experience with Alaba, FC Bayern is now “working hard” to expand the working papers of other top players. This is reported by the “Sport Bild”. At the top of the list is Leon Goretzka.
The 25-year-old midfielder moved from Schalke 04 to Isar in the summer of 2018, improved from year to year and is now one of the undisputed regular forces. So far Goretzka has played 89 competitive matches for FC Bayern, scoring 21 goals and
scoring 20 more goals. The contract ends after the 2021/22 season. In order for this to change, the Bavarian bosses should press the tube mightily.
According to “Sport Bild”, talks with Goretzka’s consultant Jörg Neubauer are planned for 2020. FC Bayern will also negotiate with Niklas Süle
“We have an excellent team, with a very good mix of young, highly talented and experienced, excellent players, and of course we want to keep this team together in the long term,” Bavarian President Herbert Hainer confirms to the sports magazine that we want to keep the majority of current staff. Salihamidzic would “strategically approach” this project.
