Bayern Munich are confident keeping hold of Leon Goretzka amid Manchester United's summer interest.

Goretzka's existing deal at Bayern has less than 12 months to run and he is yet to sign an extension, but new boss Julian Nagelsmann believes the 26-year-old will commit his future to the club.

"I'm not involved enough that I have a say every day. I stay out of these issues," said Nagelsmann.

"Of course I have talked to him about my plans for him. I've told him I'd be happy if he extended and I'm also confident.

"There are several topics involved when it comes to discussing a contract extension.

"I'll continue to focus on the sports side of things and show him he can be one of the most dangerous midfielders in Europe. He has potential to get even better."
