Karl-Heinz Rummenigge: Götze’s future could be elsewhere


The midfielder’s contract is rapidly running out

Bayern Munich chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge admits that the club are open to offers for playmaker Mario Gotze.

The German international’s contract is due to run out after two more years at the Bundesliga champions; Premier League clubs Manchester United and Arsenal are keeping tabs on the situation.

Despite Bayern boss Pep Guardiola suggesting Gotze would be staying at the Allianz Arena, it looks as though he could be on his way.

Rummenigge has admitted the attacking midfielder’s future could be elsewhere, but they will only let him leave if the price is right.

‘There is only one price’

According to the Daily Star, Rummenigge said: “The duration of his contract is known. In addition to that, we are not aware of anything else.”

He also added: “There is only one price, and that’s the price of the market, which is controlled by supply and demand.”

Gotze’s manager Guardiola admitted: “He helped us a lot, he’s a young player with a lot of talent. It is my decision that he hasn’t played much in recent games.”

The Spaniard also acknowledged: “I am very happy with his attitude. There is no discussion as to whether he stays or not.”

Gotze joined Bayern Munich from Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund back in 2013 for a fee of €32 million.

He is well known for his 2014 World Cup heroics when he scored the winner against Argentina in a 1-0 extra time victory in the final, making Germany the first European team to win the trophy on South American soil.

In the last campaign for both his domestic club and his national team, the 23-year old scored 16 goals in 54 appearances in all competitions.
