His salary at Bayern is going to be 20M per season (according to Bild (via Sport)); Presumably before tax, and with bonuses included -Schalke offered gim €10m-per-year in what was already a bumper contract offer.

The salary is high and as is customary with most free transfers, this will highly likely see the player himself earn a bit more money for choosing to make the move.

I feel that is a fair bargain especially since he’s not a green horn. He had several international caps under his belt and has a lot of game experience from his Schalke days....

Though I also think FIFA is a stretch for "a real game" - I know what you mean...

Really liked what I saw from his debut! He may have not had as many touches as Thiago did for example but he is definitely always finding ways to be involved the game and the best part is that is usually around the opponents 25 yard box!

I think I'm starting to understand why so many compare Goretzka to Ballack.

His choice of words is interesting. Why his teammates and not Kovac and/or the fans?

Because his teammates, Robben and Ribery, are the actual coaches of the team :mrgreen:

Because this might come as a shock to you, but German players, playing for a German team in Germany, being questioned by German journalists tend to answer in German... ;)
And translations tend to give you the gist, are an interpretation, and/or leave out some details...
