Bayern München and Leon Goretzka are far apart in their talks over a contract extension, according to Sport Bild.

Goretzka, who is out of contract next year, is demanding €20 million per year to sign a new contract with the Bavarians, who are only prepared to offer around €10-12 million, per the report.

It is further claimed that Goretzka and his agent are 'irritated' that the negotiations are currently at a standstill.

Due to a self-imposed salary cap, Bayern want to keep all annual wages below €20 million per season. Only a few top players have come close to that mark.

Manchester United, Real Madrid and FC Barcelona are all said to be interested in Goretzka.
