Bild - Goretzka will not leave Schalke 04 in January. The clause...
Leon Goretzka will not leave Schalke 04 in January but that does not mean the German midfielder will renew his contract that expires in summer of 2018. According to Bild, Schalke 04 need to have Goretzka for the entire season as with him, the team will have better chance of achieving their targets for the season.
The interesting thing is that in Goretzka’s contract, there are clauses that allow the player and agent to make 20% each (so 40% total) if he is sold in 2018. So, if the transfer fee is 20 million euros, Schalke 04 would only make 13.3 million, the rest go to the player and agent.
