Leon Goretzka probably doesn’t want to leave Bayern Munich. But a sale could be realistic – in the Premier League?
Leon Goretzka is said not to be thinking of leaving FC Bayern, even if the competition in FCB’s central midfield could become significantly greater in the coming season. As the tz now reported, a sale is no longer ruled out in the club management.
The reason for this is that the midfield duo Kimmich/Goretzka is now viewed critically. In addition, Kimmich should be seen by Tuchel on the eight – actually Goretzka’s favorite position. With Konrad Laimer, a new signing is probably already perfect, and Bayern are courting Declan Rice.
Liverpool FC, who absolutely have to strengthen their midfield, could be interested, writes the tz. Jude Bellingham is likely to move to Real Madrid, so the Reds’ preferred option is off the table. LFC candidate Mason Mount apparently agrees with ManUnited, Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp is running out of options from the top drawer.
With Goretzka, Liverpool could improve their midfield, the German record champions could create space on the payroll and generate a high transfer fee through the ex-Schalke player’s contract, which runs until 2026.
Goretzka experienced a mixed year on Säbener Straße. In 40 games, the 28-year-old has 6 goals and 6 assists.
