Mario Gotze’s future is now the talk of the German media, and Barcelona’s mainstay goalkeeper Marc Andre Ter Stegen tries to give advice to the compatriot to move closer to Spain.
It must be admitted that Mario Gotze has a great opportunity to leave Bayern Munich in the transfer market next summer. Because the former Bayern Munich contract at Signal Iduna Park is currently only remaining until the end.
So far, there are no signs of a contract extension from Borussia Dortmund. Naturally, Gotze did not succeed in showing his great performance since returning to Signal Iduna Park in the summer of 2017.
Aside from performance factors, Gotze is also troubled by recurrent muscle injuries, so maybe the player also feels it’s time to look for new challenges.
Last year, Gotze claimed he would open up opportunities for a career outside Germany. German national team hero at the 2014 World Cup began to be associated with a number of clubs such as Chelsea, Arsenal to West Ham United.
However, Ter Stegen actually suggested his colleagues to try their luck at La Liga in Spain.
“Mario is a player who is able to master the ball well and improve the game. He certainly would be very suitable to play in La Liga. Either the goal is to play soccer – I don’t know. When we talk, we never talk about football.
“For me, the most important thing is that he made the right decision and was happy. He will be suitable to play in many clubs and can be a differentiator for those clubs. ” Ter Stegen said to Kicker.
Actually, the situation of Marc-Andre Ter Stegen in Barcelona is also not much different from Gotze. The 28-year-old goalkeeper has still not reached an agreement related to the new contract with Giant Catalan.
Regarding that fact, Ter Stegen stressed that it was unethical to discuss contractual issues in the midst of this pandemic.
“We have already started talks, then the Corona problem arose, it is not a situation where you have to talk about contracts,” Ter Stegen said.
