Leon Goretzka has been the subject of a protracted transfer saga, but Karl-Heinz Rummenigge says a final decision is coming soon.
Bayern Munich expect midfield target Leon Goretzka to decide his Schalke future “in a few days”.
The likes of Barcelona, Liverpool and Juventus are rumoured to be interested in the Germany international, but Bayern are leading the chase.
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Bayern’s executive board chairman, reckons they would be “crazy” not to be interested in Goretzka and is optimistic about hearing the midfielder’s final decision.
“We would be crazy if we did not think about signing a German international whose contract runs out,” Rummenigge told Sky.
“Now it is up to the player to decide, and it would be nice if he chose Bayern in the end. You only have an agreement when you sign the contract.
“All top clubs like Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester United or Juventus wanted him, so it is perfectly legal and normal that the top club from Germany is interested in this player, too. The decision will be taken in a few days.”
