There is some surprise here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro claim that Chelsea may make a shock swoop for Mario Gotze.
The Bayern Munich player has become unhappy with life at the Allianz Arena under Pep Guardiola and that has raised a few eyebrows here in the tavern.
The German international midfielder has of course spent a rather large amount of time on the bench this term and his dream move from Borussia Dortmund has not exactly gone to plan.
As one of our punters reminds us over a drink, the player was thought to be one of the brightest stars in football but has seen his rise stalled somewhat since his big move to the Allianz Arena.
Chelsea are always on the lookout for new talent and Jose Mourinho clearly sees something in the star – who has made no secret of his frustration this term.
Gotze was asked about his future and noted: “Of course I’m not happy. I want to win back the trust of the coach to play more.”
The 21-year-old was of course a target for Jose Mourinho during his time at Real Madrid and we will be watching this one with interest.
Chelsea fans. Given Oscar’s drop in form of late, would a move for Mario Gotze make sense? Let us know your thoughts below.
