Solskjaer says talks are ongoing between Man Utd and Pogba over new deal

Leon Goretzka has ended speculation linking him with a move to Manchester United as he is set to sign a new contract at Bayern Munich.

The Germany international’s future has been up in the air with his current deal at the Allianz Arena set to run out in the summer of 2022.

Man Utd reportedly emerged as one of his potential suitors as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer targeted a free agent signing next year.

But that has been put to bed with Goretzka set to put pen to paper on a new deal, according to Goal.

The 26-year-old will commit his future at Bayern until 2026 worth between £10million and £13million a year.

Joshua Kimmich, who also has a year left on his deal, is also expected to agree new terms with the reigning Bundesliga champions.

Bayern have always been confident of fending off interest from the likes of United for Goretzka and Kimmich, but made it clear they would not be held to ransom at the negotiating table.

Club president Herbert Hainer said: “They will certainly not be kept at any cost.

“The players know what they have at Bayern, they are paid very well here too, everyone gets their salary. And they can win titles with us now, and also in the future.”

Bayern boss Julian Nagelsmann had also expressed his wish to build his team around Goretzka.

When asked about his contract talks, he said: “Of course I have talked to him about my plans for him. I’ve told him I’d be happy if he extended and I’m also confident.

“There are several topics involved when it comes to discussing a contract extension.

“I’ll continue to focus on the sports side of things and show him he can be one of the most dangerous midfielders in Europe. He has potential to get even better.”
