I was referring, of course, to Mario Goetze, the man Mkhitaryan is replacing at Dortmund. Goetze sat and watched the Champions League final due to injury as his new team beat his old team, 2-1.
The €37 million move announced in April has now become official this summer, making Goetze the most expensive transfer ever for a German player.
Along with Thiago Alcantara, Goetze has now given Bayern all sorts of the depth in central midfield, as he will join a group that includes, among others, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Javi Martinez and Toni Kroos. While Thiago will have to bide his time, Goetze should start in the central attacking midfield role.
One of the bright young stars of the game, Goetze is not only the best signing made in the Bundesliga, but one of the best by any club in any country. The only thing that seems to be able to slow him down are injury concerns. If Goetze stays healthy, the European champions will be even scarier in 2013/14.
