Gotze may return to Dortmund
German club Borussia Dortmund is currently working on a bid to bring Mario Gotze back from Bayern Munich.
The player who joined Bayern Munich in 2013 has failed to make an impact at his current club and might be favorable to a return to Dortmund.
Borussia Dortmund will be leaving for China for their pre-season preparation but are still active on the transfer market. The manager is keen to strengthen the team so as to be able to compete in the Bundesliga.
Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has admitted that there are talks in progress between the two clubs, but they have yet to finalize a deal. The player currently has one year contract remaining with Bayern Munich, but he may be available for the right fee.
Hans-Joachim Watzke said that no agreement has been achieved so far and that they still have to talk with Bayern Munich’s representative as well as the player himself. He stated that it would be a great thing for Mario Gotze to return to Borussia Dortmund but at the moment there is nothing concrete.
Borussia Dortmund will be leaving Germany for China on Thursday, but it is believed that talks will continue in the meantime. Hans-Joachim Watzke said that traveling will not hinder the negotiations and that they hope to finalize the transfer ahead of the new season as they want to give the manager some time to prepare the team.
However, some sections of the fans are not favorable to the return of Mario Gotze. They have been hurt by the way the striker have left them in 2013 and will prefer to see the player leave for a foreign club than to return to Dortmund. If ever the deal goes through, Gotze should work extra hard to restore his relationship with the fans.
