Rummenigge: Barcelona Wanted To Sign Goretzka

share on:

Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is glad to have held on to a German talent in Goretzka, with Barcelona also eager to sign him.

Goretzka will be joining Bayern Munich from Schalke at the end of the season on a four-year deal.

And Heynckes has hailed the signing, as they have succeeded in keeping a German talent in the league.

And Rummenigge has now claimed in an interview with Bayern-Magazin that La Liga giants Barcelona were in the running for 22-year-old.

“If we had not signed Leon, he would have very likely signed for Barcelona,” he said. “In general, that cannot be [good] on behalf of German football.

“Leon is enormously talented, he is only 22 years old, a German international with great potential in his position. We would have been really wrong if we had not tried to sign him.”
