    Well Gomes and Paulinho are pretty shit at that though. It would make sense if this accompanies the signing of an actual no 8 playmaker. Goretzka is a decent passer, dribbler etc, but he's a box-to-box mid and yes, similar to what Gomes is, just in actually decent. If Barca signs Goretzka, then they should still track Seri and if that's the case then they have signed 3 mids this year and they should sell 1-2 of those they don't want anymore (Gomes..)
    Couldn't have said it better! Get this guy and Jorginho or Seri and I'm happy.

    He wil be a starter at Barca? Gomis, Rakitic, Paulinho are all same typee of midfielders. At most one of them will start with Busquets.

    l like hearing this stuff. like Monaco is PSG's rival or Schalke is BM rival. Come on, BM has only rival in Bundesliga or potential big rival, and that's not Schalke or Dortmund, it's Rasenball Lepizig.
    Yes, the reports are from May and noone reliable, like Kicker or so ever backed them up till they got squashed by Schalke and Goretzka themselves. He's better than Gomes and Paulinho so he'd only compete with Rakitic and Barca plays 50+ games a year.

    And the most important thing is that Bosman ruling is forbidding him from agreeing to any sort of pre-contract with a new club until 1st January. All he can basically do is hold talks with a club (and only if Schalke allows that) and make a verbal promise that isn't actually legally binding and that doesn't forbid him from signing elsewhere in the end, if he prefers to do that. If you remember back then this is exactly what happened between Bayern and Arturo Vidal in 2011. Vidal had one year on his contract, told Bayern that he'll sit it out and join them for free, and then eventually joined Juventus instead for 12m€ because Leverkusen didn't want to sell and Arturo had a spontaneous change of plans when he heard that he can already sign a top club this year and must not wait for next year. Bayern was pissed about it in the end, but Vidal never signed anything that prevents him from doing what he did.

    I like German players. They have a strong winning mentality, they are disciplined, they work hard and are ambitious.
    We don't need players their dream is to play for Barca, we need ambitious top stars who want to win and be the best.
    Without knowing this guy very well I would sign him over the likes of Seri, Gomes or Paulinho any day.
    A midfield with Busquets, Goretzka and a creative attacking midfielder would be ideal.

    i would like to see a player like him making it here. he could fill in at Dm with busquets in 6 role. Or he could adapt to a new role. But definitely a cheap player to consider who will be a great value

    Great player. If we stopped Seri for this type of signing then I am all for it.

    The only way he will be considered by the board is if enough fans tweet about him. I am sure, the board wouldn't know he exists.

    Bild is reliabre about Bayern, while Kicker is reliabre about Dortmund, 2 different cases. There is a guy in a Turkish forum, l think he is very close to BM board, he said that BM got him. Also one example doesn't mean there will many more cases like that. we can't know it.

    let's wait and see.

    ED linked many German players before with Barca, including Goretzka himself. They are not reliabre. To be honest, l'd not go for him and l'm not expecting us to go for him. just because having 4 players for one spot is way too much.

    Rakitic starter, Gomis and Paulinho are back ups. above all, Barca needs a player like Rudy style. Jorginho would be nice. For İniesta role, l'd go for Hamsik or Eriksen.

    Kicker is still more reliable for Bayern than BILD is. Kicker is generally reliable, BILD is hit and miss. And regardless of what's reliable or not, you still can't actually make pre contracts with players a year before, so it would be nothing but a verbal agreement that can be broken at any time without consequences except Hoeness being pissed.

    I hope we go for Goretzka. I think we can get him for €30 million

    Jörg #Neubauer widerspricht den Gerüchten um Leon #Goretzka und äußert sich zu dessen Zukunft. [@Sport1] #S04 #Schalke #Barca #FCB
    l told you it was another lie from ED. Having 4 players for one position is way too much.

    Rakitic earns so much so he will be a starter. Paulinho will be his back up. otherwise Barca wouldn't spend 40 m euros for him. Gomis won't leave too.

    Barca should go for Hamsik or Eriksen along with Jorginho or Seri. l still think Seri is a must.

    Barca can't get hamsik or jorginho, they are going to help Napoli fight for the Serie A. Eriksen is impossible.


    I still don't understand why Schalke would sell their player for free to a Bundesliga club when they can get money now . They are going to sell Benedikt Howedes most likely, so I can see them selling goretzka

    We will get Seri and Goretzka, Gomes will be sold

    I think Thomas Lemar could be very useful. Can play both LW and in Iniesta's position. Iniesta is his big idol and role model. We can afford him even after Dembele.
