    Goretzka: "It will not last until deep into January"

    When will Leon Goretzka (22) decide on his future? "It will not last until late January," says Schalke on kicker demand. "I have not set a deadline, but I can say that I'm in the final stages." Does he leave S04 in summer without a transfer, or does he accept the long-standing offer to extend his contract, which, according to kicker information, brings him ten million euros per season? "I do not care about money at all," says Goretzka. "I just have to figure out for myself which step will be next for me, and I'm in the process right now, there are so many things that matter." There should be offers, among others, from FC Barcelona and the two Manchester clubs. Also the FC Bayern Munich is interested.

    Kicker...

    Sounds to me a January move is on the table.

    There seems to be Sane levels of hype about this lad so I do hope we are interested.

    It wouldn't surprise me if United pick him up though. They need a number ten with Mkhitaryan seemingly out of favour with Mourinho.

    Play no 10 at United - just in front of the back 4 and spend all week working in defensive formations. He’d be nuts to go there.

    Thanks man. Your posts are always insightful. How do you rate him on general, do you see any weaknesses in his game and most importantly, do you think he'll be a good fit as a Fernandinho replacement. Cheers.

    Probably not... But atleast I am female. ;)

    ---------------

    Isn't Fernandinho somebody that can play the holding role behind 2 more offensive players? That is not Goretzka. He plays more box to box but with strengths not as the creator but as somebody that can go into the box and shoot or head as he is very tall for a midfielder. He might have played deeper in previous seasons but that is where he plays now for Schalke and when he gets time for the German team.

    Hahaha! I'm all the more impressed with you given that you're a lady, sorry a female. Reason I asked is, given that we do not play in a conventional manner like most teams and given that Pep is the definition of radical/unconventional, I for one thought there just might be a holding midfielder in him some where so I thought to ask you seeing that you are a Bayern fan and are more likely to follow Bundlesliga more than most here.

    Also because Fernandinho was known as what we call a box to box midfielder before he came here, it's not very strange to entertain the thought of having someone who even though is box to box, play a more holding role so long as he has got the basic traditional holding skill set e.g. tackling, reading of the game, strength, etc.

    I have seen Vidal in that role some times with Pep - but he has more fight in him than Goretzka has. For me he is a bit hyped too much - a good player but none I see in the "will be world class"-bracket. But that is my opinion. I do not see him better than Tolisso, who is about the same age. But yes, he is out of contract in summer and for that a steal.
