Man United & Arsenal target aims thinly-veiled dig at Pep Guardiola; international playmaker hints at transfer

Bayern Munich playmaker Mario Gotze has admitted that his doesn’t know what the future holds, while also criticising his current coach Pep Guardiola.

The forward has been heavily tipped with a move away from Bavaria this summer, with Premier League heavyweights Arsenal and Manchester United both understood to be keen on his services.

Gotze moved to the Allianz Arena in 2013 when he left Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund, but he has found it hard to establish himself as a key figure with the reigning German champions.

The 23-year-old has admitted that he has found the going touch in Munich and has hinted that he may yet be set for a summer departure.

“It’s clear that the last two years have not been easy,” he began, as reported by L’Equipe.

“We will see what happens.”

The attacker also appeared to aim a thinly-veiled dig at current coach Guardiola, “we’ll see if he [Guardiola] will talk to me more often,” Gotze continued.

“At the moment, I will just let things happen,” he continued, “for everything else, we’ll soon see.”

Gotze’s recent cryptic comments come in contrast to quotes attributed to the player recently by the Express, in which he appeared to deny that there was any truth in suggestions he’d soon be heading for the exit door at the club.

However, his latest words may well pique the interest of a whole series of admirers.

According to ESPN, Juventus were in pole position to sign the playmaker earlier in the summer—having lost £28 million Arturo Vidal to Munich [Independent].

Similarly, Star Sport have reported that both Manchester United and Arsenal are considering a move for the player.
