Barcelona Superstar Unhappy With Latest Transfer News over Leon Goretzka

There has been a lot of speculation regarding Schalke 04 play-maker Leon Goretzka’s future at the German club after he was left with just one more season at the Veltins-Arena.

With Premier League outfit Liverpool are keen on bringing Goretzka to Anfield, it seems that Barcelona is now the latest club that is willing to put up a fight for the versatile midfielder.

However, the two foreign clubs may be disappointed to find out that Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich have already agreed to a verbal deal which would bring Goretzka to the Bavarian club after the race for his signature came to an end. Goretzka will reportedly start his career at the Allianz Arena on June 30th, 2018 switching on a free transfer.

Argentinian forward, Lionel Messi is also upset about Goretzka’s transfer news after he had given his side the ‘green light’ to sign the 22-year-old talent. Messi was waiting for the arrival of a young star midfielder’s arrival at the Camp Nou in the next transfer window but now may have to wait a little longer.

Liverpool ace Philippe Coutinho is another prime target for the Catalan side, which are desperately looking at a replacement for veteran midfielder Andreas Iniesta, as the Spanish maestro finds it difficult to last the whole 90 minutes.  Messi was looking forward to the arrival of one of these stellar midfielders to play alongside, but Jurgen Klopp will also be reluctant to sell his prized asset.


There are also reports that La Liga rivals, Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann is eyeing a move to Barcelona, but then, once again, Atleti manager Diego Simeone will be hoping the arrival of Diego Costa is the winter transfer window boosts his team’s form and he keeps his French talisman.

Author’s take

It’s highly unlikely that Barcelona will be able to sign a quality player in this winter transfer window as each and every top club in Europe look to keep a hold of their nifty players. However, with deep pockets anything could be possible, as we realized with the £70 million move for Virgil Van Dijk from Southampton to Liverpool.
