Schalke's Goretzka To Join Bayern After Signing Pre-Contract Agreement

As of the summer 2018, Schalke midfielder Leon Goretzka will be a player of Bayern Munich on the first of July 2018.
Sporting director Christian Heidl officially confirmed midfielder Goretzka has signed a pre-contract agreement with Bayern.

The 22-year-old, who attracted interest from Manchester United and other Premier League clubs, will join Bayern in the summer after passing a medical on Friday.

The Schalke Sporting Director said:
"Leon Goretzka informed us at the beginning of this week that he wishes to leave the club to join Bayern Munich.

"We regret that. Yesterday Karl-Heinz Rummenigge informed us that Leon had his medical. We lose a very good player.

"He signed at Bayern a contract starting from 1. July 2018. We did everything to keep Leon at Schalke.

"Last summer there was no agreement with him and his agent. He wanted more time to see the sportical development."
Goretzka is a Germany international with 12 caps and six goals, having made his senior debut for his country in 2014.
