Leon Goretzka has committed his future to Bayern Munich by signing a new contract until 2026. He was linked with a move away from the club during the summer transfer window including a move to Manchester United. The German international was entering into the final year of his contract and was linked with a move to Manchester United along with Eduardo Camavinga and Saul Niguez who moved to Real Madrid and Chelsea respectively. Goretzka joined Bayern Munich in 2018 from Schalke and was a key member of the Champions League-winning team last season under Hansi Flick.
“We’ve won everything there is to win over the past three years. But what would be even better than winning titles is confirming and repeating these successes. We want to build on this in the coming years.” Bayern Munich midfielder Leon Goretzka said. “The team, the club, and the environment are not just highly professional, but also familiar. This mixture is one of the things that guarantee success at this club. I’m very happy to be extending my contract until 2026.”
“I stay out of these issues. Of course, I have talked to him about my plans for him”Nagelsmann had said prior to the start of the season. “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.”
