Schalke have tabled their final contract offer to Leon Goretzka.
BILD says S04 haven't dropped hopes of keeping Goretzka and have made a new contract offer - which is expected to be their last.
The deal is worth a base €10m-a-year rising to €12m-a-year based on appearances and success. It will also include an affordable buyout clause.
There's hope that after Schalke's fight-back for their 4-4 draw with Borussia Dortmund last weekend that the emotion will convince Goretzka to stay.
