Manchester United are reportedly targeting a move for Leon Goretzka who is in a contract dispute with Bayern Munich.
United are keen to add a central midfielder to their ranks following the arrival of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund on Thursday.
Eduardo Camavinga is high on the club’s shortlist with the Rennes teenager’s representatives claimed to be meeting the Red Devils for talks this week.
Declan Rice is another name that has been mentioned after an impressive season with West Ham.
But a new candidate that has emerged on Friday is Goretzka, according to Bild, who is out of contract in 2022.
Would Leon Goretza be a good signing for Manchester United? Comment below
United have been alerted to the fact the German international has yet to agree an extension with the Bundesliga side with talks stalling between both parties.
Goretza’s wage demands are giving Bayern a ‘headache’ as the attacking midfielder wants to be among the club’s top earners alongside Leroy Sane following his move from Manchester City.
Bayern are also struggling to tie down Kingsley Coman and Joshua Kimmich to long-term deals.
The report states the Germans will have a problem retaining their stars which has led to United’s interest in Goretzka.
Goretzka has been a standout performer for Bayern since moving from Schalke in 2018 and enjoyed his best season last term as he reached double-digit goals for club and country.
The 26-year-old helped Germany escape Euro 2020’s ‘Group of Death’ with a late equaliser in a 2-2 draw with Hungary before they were eliminated at the last 16 stage to England.
Bayern will be hoping to keep a hold of Goretzka but could be forced to sell him this summer if he doesn’t agree new terms to avoid losing him on a free in 12 months time.
