Carlo Ancelotti must have persuaded Mario Gotze to stay at Bayern Munich, as the playmaker seems to have completely changed his tune regarding a move away from the Allianz Arena.
The German World Cup winner told Bild (via Telegraph) yesterday that he was positive about his future in Bayern under the incoming Italian.
“I look forward to the new season in Munich and will do everything possible to compete in top shape during my first training under Carlo Ancelotti,” he said.
Now, a Facebook posts has reaffirmed his desire to stay in Bavaria.
Now, it’s up to Liverpool to alter our transfer targets and reassess the situation. We’ve now missed out on top January target Alex Teixeira and Jurgen Klopp’s personal request Gotze – but there’s plenty of other brilliant players on the market.
In fairness, we need to focus on problem areas of the squad rather than playmakers anyway.
