Bayern Munich is set to extend Leon Goretzka’s contract

FC Bayern is progressing in talks to extend Leon Goretzka’s contract, the club is confident to complete the agreement soon.


Leon Goretzka will miss the European Championship opener against France, he has not been able to train with the Germany Euro 2020 squad so far. He will soon sign a new contract with FC Bayern Munich – because of Julain Nagelsmann’s arrival at the club.

Goretzka, whose contract expires in 2022, wants to stay with the Munich-based club. The talks are going well and should be concluded soon – with a new contract until 2025 or 2026. According to reports from Germany, Goretzka sees the commitment of the new coach Julian Nagelsmann (33) very positively, so the coach is a small piece of the puzzle in the contract extension.

Goretzka reportedly likes Nagelsmann and his playing philosophy. He is looking forward to working together with the former RB Leipzig manager at Bayern. Nagelsmann signed a contract in April 2021 with Bayern Munich until 2026. He will reunite with the French centre back Dayot Upamecano at Bayern who was also signed by RB Leipzig for a fee of €42.5 million.

Currently, Goretzka has torn muscle fibres in his thigh and Joachim Löw has said that he is unlikely to be available for Germany’s Euros opener against France. The Bayern player will “grow in and work his way in” during the tournament, Löw added: “At the moment he is missing from the headquarters. He will certainly need a few more days, maybe another week, to get into team training.”

Despite dealing with injury issues and Covid-19 this season, Goretzka contributed eight goals and nine assists in 32 games in all competitions for Bayern Munich.
