Julian Nagelsmann admits he would like to have Leon Goretzka at his disposal for 'many years' at Bayern München.
"Of course, he's a very important player," Nagelsmann admitted at his first press conference as Bayern coach when asked about the 26-year-old midfielder.
"I would be very happy to work with him for many years of what I hope will be an emerging era," added Nagelsmann.
"He's one of the most dangerous midfielders in the world. We want him to stay."
FC Bayern chairman said earlier this week that he is 'optimistic' that Goretzka will put pen to paper on a new contract.
