The Bavarians Chief has insisted that the midfield duo can’t be kept at any cost.

Bayern Munich president Hainer has offered a major update of contract extensions of Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka, insisting that the club wouldn’t succumb to player’s demands during the contract talks.

Kimmich’s current deal expires in the summer of 2023 while his midfield partner Goretzka is in the final year of his contract and has been linked with an exit.

Hainer said: “They will certainly not be kept at any cost. The players know what they have at Bayern, they are paid very well here too, everyone gets their salary.

“And they can win titles with us now, and also in the future.”

It has been reported recently that Kimmich is well on his way to sign a new contract while on the other hand, Manchester United are still interested in Goretzka.

Goretzka moved to the Allianz Arena in 2018 and has been an integral part of the Bavarians over the last two seasons.

Bayern manager Julian Nagelsmann also spoke highly of the 26-year-old and added that he remains optimistic over the midfielder’s contract extension.

Elsewhere, Man Utd are keen on reinforcing the midfield and have added Goretzka to their wishlist.

Kimmich has established himself as one of the best central midfielders in Europe over the last two seasons despite playing as a full-back for half of his career.

Bayern have kickstarted their 2021/22 season with a draw against Borussia Monchengladbach.
