Goretzka Signs For Bayern

Leon Goretzka has passed a medical and agreed a deal to sign for Bayern Munich at the end of the season, Schalke sporting director Christian Heidel has confirmed.

Goretzka was out of contract at Schalke at the end of the season and, while the club tried to keep him in Gelsenkirchen, it was always likely he would move on.

Bayern declared their desire to take the 22-year-old to Bavaria last week, the Bundesliga champions’ executive board chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge stating they would be “crazy” if they did not consider signing a free agent Germany international.

And the lure of playing at the Allianz Arena has proved key, despite reported interest from the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal and Juventus.
