Ahead of Bayern Munich’s Wednesday Champions League match, one of the stars mentioned he is ready for a contract extension meeting. 

With Bayern Munich doing so great on all fronts, one of the club’s rising stars is keen on starting negotiations for a contract extension. Also, he obviously wants to talk about a salary increase that will place him at the level he thinks he deserves.

In fact, this player has been one of the most impressive talents who grew to become a world-beater while at Bayern. His gym work has been quite impressive throughout the last year and he backs it up with top performances. In case you haven’t guessed who were are talking about by now, that player is Leon Goretzka. As a Schalke 04 player, we could already see some glimpses of the player he could potentially become.

All he needed was that push towards the harder work and dedication he got at Bayern. The Bavarian giants took control of his fitness and got impressive results as a response from the player. In today’s landscape, there is no successful Bayern Munich without counting Leon Goretzka. 

Goretzka is keen on a contract extension.

Knowing how well he’s adapted to the Bayern Munich philosophy, Leon is very aware of his worth and wants to be compensated accordingly. Although he loves playing for the reigning champions, he also wants his skills to be acknowledged.

Unlike homegrown talents such as Thomas Muller or Joshua Kimmich, Goretzka won’t hesitate to leave if he doesn’t feel appreciated. We already saw a similar case with Toni Kroos, who wanted to try new things and became a legend at Real Madrid.

But Leon is willing to talk to the bosses about his extension as he revealed through Goal: “So far there have been no discussions held with me. I’m under contract for another year and a half so there is not a lot of pressure. But if Brazzo [sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic] or Hansi [Flick] approach me in the next few weeks then I will not refuse to talk to them.”
