Bayern are in talks over extending the midfielder’s contract, which runs out in 2022.
The 26-year-old’s agent, Jorg Neubauer, was recently forced to retire and Neubauer’s wife has taken charge instead along with Bundesliga heavyweight agent Thomas Kroth.
However, Sport Bild claims Goretzka’s camp are ‘irritated’ that contract talks have not yet resumed over an improved extension.
The star has emerged as a target for Real Madrid and Barcelona, as well as a host of Premier League clubs.
But seemingly Manchester United are in pole position to snap up the Bayern star.
Reports in Germany state United have tabled a ‘concrete offer’ to the ace for him to join them when he becomes a free agent in June.
The Red Devils are not actively pursuing a new central midfielder at the moment.
But with Paul Pogba’s future still uncertain, it appears Goretzka could be targeted as his replacement with a reported £200k-a-week package.
