Question about German

in "War and Peace" there are sometimes German phrases that characters say. i came across this one "Ich sagte ja, daß die ganze Geschichte zum Teufel gehen wird". why is "wird" used in this sentence? it looks like indirect speech to me and i would use "werde". could you please clarify what the correct version here would be and why?
