"Leon Goretzka has developed extremely well over the last 12 months. In my eyes, he has become one of the most important players for us and a symbol of our success," Hainer told Sport1.
"We want to extend his contract, but our sporting management currently has a number of contract talks pending. [Sporting director] Hasan Salihamidzic is taking care of them one by one."
Goretzka set up three goals in Bayern's 5-1 victory over FC Köln last week. In total, the 26-year-old has notched up five goals and seven assists in 23 appearances this season.
