Nagelsmann confident over Goretzka

Julian Naglesmann is confident Leon Goretzka will sign a new deal with Bayern Munich despite rumours linking him with a switch to Manchester United.

"I'm not involved enough that I have a say every day. I stay out of these issues," the 34-year-old 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." Goretzka is one of the many players linked to the Red Devils, but the German reportedly wants to stay on at the Allianz Arena beyond 2022.
