Schalke general manager Christian Heidel has reiterated his desire to keep Leon Goretzka at the club beyond this summer. Heidel will meet Goretzka and his representative Jörg Neubauer once the player returns from international duty with Germany at the FIFA Confederations Cup.
“Leon will not be able to change clubs this summer. He will remain at Schalke beyond this summer. We have sporting goals, that is why selling him prematurely does not make any sense to us. I do not want to negotiate with other clubs about Leon Goretzka.” Heidel told SPORTBILD.
