Bayern Munich Confirm Interest In Germany International
Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich have confirmed their interest in a Germany international who has also been linked with Manchester United and Liverpool.
Leon Goretzka has played a starring role for Schalke this season, helping them to second spot at the halfway point in the Bundesliga season.
The 22-year-old, who has already scored six goals in 12 appearances for Germany national team, has attracted interest from the German champions and the Premier League sides, among others.
Goretzka's contract with Schalke expires at the end of the season, and he is expected to leave either this month or once the campaign is complete.
"Leon Goretzka is a great player, that's clear," Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic said via the club's official Twitter account.
"He is a Schalke player and we obviously respect that. But he is a Germany international and we can say that we are interested in him."
