Los Blancos have been linked with an offer for the German international ,amid a growth in speculation over his future in Bavaria, as he enters the final year of his contract at the Allianz Arena.
Goretzka is rumoured to be keen on an exit from the Bundesliga in the next 12 months with a switch to Spain an interesting option for the 26-year-old.
