Ever since Jurgen Klopp took over Liverpool, Mario Gotze has been linked with a move to Liverpool. The recent reports from various media and the club officials have, however revealed that the German midfielder has decided to stay back at Bayern Munich and fight for his place.
There were reports that the 23-year-old had agreed a £175,000-a-week deal with the Reds – worth £9.1million a season, But the transfer collapsed on Monday when he decided to sack his agent and appointed Munich-based agent Professor Peter Duvinage to represent him. As his previous manager Pep Guardiola is heading to Manchester City and Carlo Ancelotti coming in, the player is willing to stay back and fight for his place in the team.
This is a big blow for Liverpool as the club sure was hoping to sign the Germany international in the summer. However, now with the player deciding to stay back, the Reds will have to look elsewhere for their midfield maestro. Well, if reports are true, then Klopp has a pretty decent transfer kitty to snag someone else.
