Goretzka a great deal for Juventus but Manchester City and several Top European clubs are chasing the player

Leon Goretzka's contract is set to expire on June 30, 2018. The 22-year-old is therefore ready to sign a new agreement with another club starting from January 1st. Rumors are reporting on Manchester City's interest in the player. According to U.K. outlet 'Mirror', the 'Citizens' are monitoring the situation and the Spaniard coach is willing to make an offer to the German side soon. Shalke 04 could decide to cash in to avoid losing him on a free.

Goretzka's current transfer market value is €20 million as confirmed by 'CIES Football Observatory'.  Manchester City and Juventus could make a lower offer to make a deal but they have to face a fierce competition. The 22-year-old is also being tracked by Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, and Bayern Munich as well. The midfielder has made 10 appearances so far, scoring 4 goals between Bundesliga and the DFB-Pokal Cup

Juventus General Director Marotta and Sporting Director Paratici are waiting for the right moment to begin a negotiation with Schalke 04. However, Juventus is also assessing if Liverpool's Emre Can can be a better deal for the club. Even the Turkish player is a great midfielder able to play in different roles and he could be really useful to Max Allegri
