It has been reported that London is the favoured destination for unhappy Bayern Munich midfielder Mario Gotze.
Chelsea and Arsenal are being linked with the World Cup winner, along with Manchester United, after his agent hit out at Bayern coach Pep Guardiola this week.
They were words that were clearly designed to hasten Götze’s move away from Bayern and reports in Germany suggest a move to England is most likely for the 23-year-old forward.
“Guardiola has destroyed Götze. He feels like the coach doesn’t have faith in him and yet still he is asked to be decisive when he gets on the pitch,” agent Volker Struth told Bild.
“I’m surprised that Guardiola didn’t use Götze in important matches like the German Cup and Champions League semi-finals. He only plays in the easy games.
“I wonder why no one at the club has realised that and defended Mario. Bayern need a figure like former president Uli Hoeness again.”
