Wenger finally going for Mario? by MP
Hi, I am a half English Arsenal fan living in Spain, and I have been following the Gunners for many years, but I find that the rumours reported on JustArsenal never seem to match up with the news in the Spanish media. At the moment the Spanish press are reporting that “El Arsenal activa la opción Mario Götze” e.g. they are now ready to match Bayern Munich’s asking price for the German international Mario Gotze.
It has been reported for many years that Arsene Wenger has been a big fan of Gotze when he was learning his trade at Dortmund, but Arsenal were outbid by Munich when he finally left the Bundesliga club. His experience so far in Munich has been less than impressive and it would seem that Pep Guardiola is trying to persuade him that his future lies elsewhere, and why not at Arsenal?
Guardiola has already told Gotze that he has a decision to make, and it seems Munich are willing to accept much less than the 37m Euros that they paid to Dortmund to make room in their squad for a more favoured star, and if Wenger is serious about taking him to the Emirates, at a reasonable transfer fee, there is no reason why he could not regain his former fantastic form in the Gunners training regime.
Perhaps a change of scenery with a new club could get his creative juices flowing once again, and he could end up being the winger that we have wanted at Arsenal for many years.
Who wants this rumour to be true?
