Bayern München are planning to open contract talks with Leon Goretzka in the near future, according to Sport Bild.


The German media outlet reports that the German champions want to hold initial talks with Goretzka's agent, Jörg Neubauer, before the end of the year.

Goretzka, 25, was snapped up on a free transfer from Schalke 04 two years ago, signing a contract until 2022 worth around €8 million per season.

Furthermore, Bayern also want to open talks with Niklas Süle and Joshua Kimmich, who are both under contract until 2023, in good time.

"We have an excellent team, with a very good mix of young, highly talented and experienced, excellent players, and of course we want to keep this team together in the long term," Bayern president Herbert Hainer told Sport Bild.

"Our sporting director, Hasan Salihamidzic, and his team will approach this task strategically. They know exactly what to do," he continued.
