Bayern Munich have made several headlines over the past few days, but none of them have been positive. The drubbing loss to PSG, the sacking of Carlo Ancelotti, and the rumours of the five players that suppossedly removed the Italian manager from his duties have not left a very good image for Bayern of late.
However, that has not stopped the reigning Bundesliga champions when it comes to sign new players. And according to several reports, Die Roten are close to seal a move for one of the biggest talents in the German Bundesliga. We are talking about Leon Goretzka.
According to Calciomercato, Bayern are reportedly details away from completing the signature of the German international. Gortezka currently plays for Schalke 04, but already said he is not going to sign a new deal so all signs indicate he will join the European giants once the current season ends.
Goretzka has been one of the hottest names in the transfer market this year. He played a pivotal role for Germany in the 2017 Confederations Cup title, and his performances caught the eye of some of the best teams in the world. Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United and Juventus wanted to acquire him, but it looks like Bayern have won the race for the 22-year-old playmaker.
