Mario Gotze transfer fee: What Liverpool & Tottenham could have signed returning winger for revealed

Posted by

Borussia Dortmund have confirmed the re-signing of Mario Gotze from Bayern Munich.

Gotze rejoins his boyhood club on a four-year deal after three difficult seasons at the Allianz Arena, in which he won a trio of Bundesliga titles but struggled for form and regular football.

New Bayern boss Carlo Ancelotti has allowed Germany’s 2014 World Cup hero to leave as he entered the final 12 months of his contract. Munich confirmed the move on their official English Twitter.

According to The Express, both Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur had been interested in bringing the 24-year-old winger to the Premier League, and allegedly could have got him for a snip!

Sky Sports reports that Dortmund have paid €22m (£18.3m) to reacquire Gotze’s services, which appears to be a bargain in comparison to some of the money having been thrown at players this summer.

Liverpool will pay £25m for Newcastle United’s Georginio Wijnaldum, Sky Sports claims, while the Reds managed to get £15m from Bournemouth for the unproven Jordon Ibe – fee confirmed by BBC Sport.
