Mario Gotze is being linked to Manchester City. Could the young German be heading to the Etihad this summer?
Mario Gotze is a hot commodity. Many teams are looking at the young German and would love to have him.
Manchester City is apparently in the running.
According to German publication Kicker via The Guardian's John Ashdown, Gotze's agent met with City's sporting director Txiki Begiristain in March to discuss the possibility of the 20-year-old joining the club.
Apparently, the two discussed the €40 million release clause that Gotze has under his current contract with Borussia Dortmund.
I find this rumor very difficult to believe. While Gotze is a fantastic player, I do not think he will be leaving Dortmund anytime soon.
With Pep Guardiola managing Bayern Munich next season, many Dortmund players want to stay at the club to challenge Munich. Especially since Bayern dominated the Bundesliga this season.
I expect Gotze to stay at Dortmund even though many teams are after him.
