Things haven't gone well this season for 28-year-old Boateng, though, and according to reliable German publication Kicker is concerned about his future at the Bundesliga club after an injury hit season that has led to him falling down Carlo Ancelotti's pecking order lately.

Bayern's move for Goretzka could then clear the path for Manchester United to sign Renato Sanches.

Leipzig's Timo Werner netted twice and with 21 league goals he is the Bundesliga's best German striker and a shoe-in when Germany's squad for next month's Confederations Cup is announced on Wednesday.

Hoeness says he has already personally told Leipzig's billionaire backer, Red Bull's co-founder Dietrich Mateschitz, that RB can only break Bayern's monopoly of the Bundesliga with more experience in their ranks. At this point, perhaps Bayern management are questioning the fitness level of one of their prized defenders.

Jurgen Klopp must look to sign Bayern Munich centre-back Holger Badstuber on a free this summer.

When Robben hit the crossbar with a free-kick on 84 minutes, Lewandowski reacted fastest to head home the rebound, which set the scene for the dramatic late goals.

In a high-scoring afternoon in the Bundesliga, Hoffenheim won 5-3 at Werder Bremen, who mounted a mini-comeback after going 5-0 down within 59 minutes. The results of the last rounds were not without surprises and, although Leipzig remains for 7 games in a row without defeat, until victory in the last round over Gertoy, Leipzig played a draw with Ingolstadt and Schalke.

Augsburg dented Borussia Dortmund's hopes of claiming the final automatic Champions League place by holding on for a 1-1 draw.

"I was expecting more, of course", the 19-year-old Portugal worldwide has admitted.

Badstuber has spent this season on loan at Schalke but will leave Bayern for good this summer, bringing an end to his 15-year association with the club.
