Schalke 04 star Leon (€19m) has been told to decide his future at the club amid increasing talks that he will leave at the end of the campaign.
Goretzka’s current deal ends in the summer, and he has so far stalled on signing an extension, with some of Europe’s biggest sides believed to be interested in the 22-year-old.
The likes of Manchester United, Barcelona, Liverpool, Arsenal and Bayern Munich are observing the situation, and Clemens Tonnies the chairman of Schalke’s supervisory board has now called on the German to make his choice.
“We’ve done everything to ensure he stays. In January, he wants to say what he’s doing. Schalke have accepted the financial conditions of Leon and his management,”
“He was also important for the sporting development of the team last summer and, after the first half of the season, we’re in second place and in the quarter-finals of the DFB-Pokal. Leon can and must decide now.” – Tonnies told Welt am Sonntag
Goretzka has netted four goals in 11 Bundesliga appearances for Schalke this campaign.
