Could Leon Goretzka join Bayern Munich in January?

Leon Goretzka could yet join Bayern Munich in January, says Schalke 04 chariman Clemens Tönnies despite the Germany international agreeing to join the club in the summer.

Following the news that Goretzka would be swapping Schalke for Bayern, fans have turned their backs on the 22-year-old, labelling him as a ‘judas’.

Speaking to Reviersport, Tönnies said: “My first reaction was that Leon should no longer wear the shirt of Schalke 04. The fans will play a big role. If their reaction has a negative impact on the team, it’s possible that Leon will be in the stands till the summer!”

However, despite the talks within the Schalke camp, Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidžić told Sky Germany that they don’t intend on bringing Goretzka to the Allianz Arena in January.
