ibtimes: It’s important for every organization that its board understands the needs of its roster. For Barcelona, a recent report speculates that Borussia Dortmund’s Mario Gotze is within the top players they’re keeping an eye on for the future.
There’s no question that Gotze is a formidable athlete a club could get from the transfer market. The German football player has been a staple for Borussia Dortmund and has made a name for himself as a formidable midfielder. The 28-year-old has proven himself as a gifted offensive superstar with the way he’s able to move around the pitch.
In 219 appearances with Borussia Dortmund, Gotze was able to score on 45 separate occasions. To add to these, he was also able to assist with 61 goals. This is indicative of the way he maneuvers around the defenders. The manner that he approaches the game with the combination of strength and agility puts him above everyone else.
The elite skills that Gotze has displayed have caught the attention of Barcelona as they’re seeking someone of the same offensive prowess. The German star has been long-tenured with Borussia Dortmund and a change of scenery would be welcome for him.
Per Everything Barca, Gotze is a good fit for the La Liga experience and would excel under the Barcelona program. With the likes of Lionel Messi in charge of the team, Gotze can learn and gain more experience as a football player. Couple his skills with his world-class dribbling abilities and Gotze could be on his way to an even brighter future.
A signing like Gotze adds a World Cup winner to Barcelona and may provide an added spark for the team. Per Goal.com, fellow countryman Marc-Andre ter Stegen shared that he’s a good addition to the team.
“Mario is a player who can handle the ball and advance the game. He would definitely fit in the Spanish league,” ter Stegen said.
The next few months will be interesting to monitor given how the teams are slowly bouncing back provided the current situation. Expect Barcelona to keep an eye out on players such as Gotze for a potential transfer in the near future.
