Newcastle Interested In Signing German International Mario Gotze


The Mirror are reporting that Newcastle have made inquiries for German International midfielder Mario Gotze, who plays for Borussia Dortmund.

Gotze career has gone into decline over the last few seasons, and he was left out of the German squad for the World Cup which started in Russia yesterday with the host side beating Saudi Arabia 5-0.

Gotze is interested in playing in the Premier League and his former manager at Borussia Dortmund,  Jurgen Klopp, is said to be interested in taking him to Liverpool, and Arsenal are another club interested.

Everton, Leicester, and West Ham are the other Premier League clubs along with Newcastle who are said to be interested in signing the player.

Goetze scored the winning goal for Germany in Brazil in the 2014 World Cup final with that extra-time winner against Argentina.

He moved from Dortmund to Bayern Munich in 2013, but after three years in Munich, he made the move back to Borussia Dortmund in 2016.

But things have not gone well for him in his second stay at Dortmund.

Dortmund want about £18M for the 63 times capped German International (17 goals) – a fee we should be able to afford.

They say form is temporary but class is permanent and Gotze certainly has the quality that Newcastle are looking for this summer.

And if any manager can get the best out of the German International, it’s Rafa Benitez, and £18M is an affordable fee for the Magpies.

We’ll have to see what happens, but the German International wants to rekindle his career in the Premier League.

Newcastle would be a (very) good place for him to do just that.

Comments welcome.

    From Prev
    Mario Gotze is being treated for myopathy
    Hasn’t played much for 2 seasons and hasn’t
    made the German squad for Russia
    Teams like Arsenal can afford to introduce him to their
    squad and help with his rehab and hopefully reap the
    reward.
    NUFC doesn’t have the squad size , or , time to risk him.

    Make him feel welcome. Get some peas pudding and stottie in him. Make him run up and down a few slag heaps. He’ll be right as rain.
