Reports in Spain suggest that Barcelona officials had a meeting with Schalke’s Leon Goretzka in the course of the international break.
His contract runs out in June, and Bayern Munich have also been heavily linked with the acquisition of the player as a free agent at the end of the season when his current contract expires.
The midfielder reportedly met with representatives of Barcelona football club during the international break as he played no part in Germany’s friendlies due to injury.
The German is said to have expressed positive gestures in the meeting although the Catalan giants are wary of Bayern Munich’s pole position for any deal including the player.
Goretzka who plays as a central midfielder has also attracted interest from the likes of Juventus, AC Milan, and Arsenal.
