Tottenham Hotspur’s hopes of bringing in Bayern Munich superstar Mario Gotze may be fading as the German star’s former team have come inquiring about his availability.
According to the Mirror, the Spurs are set to miss out on the signing of Gotze now that Borussia Dortmund have begun inquiring about the availability of their former superstar. Per the source, Gotze is rated at around £20 million.
The Mirror reported that despite Bayern Munich’s desire to unload the 2014 FIFA World Cup hero, Gotze is determined to stay and learn under new manager Carlo Ancelotti.
Dortmund gave Gotze his big break at the senior level under former manager Jurgen Klopp back in the 2009-10 season. He won the Golden Boy award in 2011 while leading the team to back-to-back Bundesliga titles and the Champions League Final in 2013. After the loss to Bayern Munich in the 2013 Final, he joined the club.
Injuries and weak play plagued Gotze this past year as he made just 11 starts for Bayern Munich across all Bundesliga competitions, though he still contributed to the tune of three goals and four assists.
Gotze scored the lone goal for Germany in the 2014 FIFA World Cup win over Argentina.
