Eintracht Frankfurt wants to bring Mario Götze back to the Bundesliga

Nyour shine for the Bundesliga with an old friend? With Mario Götze, whose comeback in Germany’s first division would be a big surprise in this transfer summer. Eintracht Frankfurt, the Europa League winner, is actually dealing with the signing of the 2014 World Cup hero, who shot the Germans 1-0 to become world champions in the final against Argentina. Eintracht sports director Markus Krösche recently met the 30-year-old Götze for talks in Mallorca.

The former national player went on holiday there. Krösche, on the other hand, is working flat out to upgrade the squad for the unique challenge of the Champions League. “We had good talks,” he told the FAZ about his Götze plan.

Top Earner

Former BVB and Bayern professional Götze has now come to the fore in Frankfurt as a strong ten. Thanks to an exit clause in Eindhoven, where he still has a contract until July 1, 2024, he could leave the top Dutch club this summer for a transfer fee of four million euros. Eintracht would be able to raise the amount. However, Götze would probably be one of the top earners in Frankfurt in the future. Goalkeeper Kevin Trapp is said to top the salary list with an estimated annual salary of around five million euros.

In ranks of the cup winner Eindhoven Götze was worth his money. He scored twelve goals in 52 competitive games and had eleven assists in the last round. His German coach Roger Schmidt had literally brought him back into shape after a difficult time at BVB. Götze is better trained than in Dortmund, where he had not received a new contract in the summer of 2020.

The fact that he seems to have matured also speaks for him. The distance to the Bundesliga business obviously did him good. In the Netherlands, the creative attacking player regained the joy of football.

More options

However, Götze has other options when planning his future. Schmidt, who has joined Benfica, is said to be keen to take his pupil to Portugal. Unlike Eintracht, which will certainly be represented in the premier class, Lisbon – third in the domestic league – still has to qualify for the Champions League. A move to Inter Miami in the United States would probably be the most lucrative for Götze from an economic point of view.

The MLS club from Florida – in which David Beckham is a co-owner – is also advertising for the services of the world champion. Götze, it is said from his environment, could well imagine a change to Eintracht. The Frankfurt supporters are divided. She vacillates in her opinion between a possibly great move and a mere marketing campaign.

For Martin Hinteregger, Götze would be an asset as a teammate. He doesn’t know him personally, said the Frankfurt central defender in an interview with the television channel “Sky”. “But in terms of player type, Mario would be an excellent fit for us. We need someone like that, we lost someone like that in Amin Younes.” Hinti-Cup” in Sirnitz and the surrounding area – reported several times in the past few days. He told the “Kronen-Zeitung” that he would definitely end his professional career in Frankfurt. “The transfer rumors are nonsense.” The last word on the matter has not yet been spoken. Pending a discussion with Krösche, which is to take place around the start of training in Frankfurt on June 27th.

In organizing the tournament, Hinteregger initially worked with a right-wing politician before parting ways with him. In retrospect, it was “shocking to find out what political direction his former business partner stands for,” Hinteregger told ORF. The national player, who could not be reached immediately after the allegations became known to those responsible for Eintracht, had again caused a stir. The question now is how long the people of Frankfurt want to put up with the unrest that Hinteregger has repeatedly caused.

Eintracht is said to have agreed to work with Leverkusen striker Lucas Alario. The transfer fee is now being negotiated with Bayer. Alario is only one of several candidates. Eintracht would like to continue working with Filip Kostic, but would not put any obstacles in his way if he wanted to change. On Sunday, however, Italian media reported that Kostic’s advisors had agreed on a three-year contract with Juventus Turin. It’s not just the breakthrough in the matter.

Because Turin would have to agree with Eintracht on the amount of the transfer fee for the winger, the Hessians have a sum between 15 and 20 million euros in mind. As a first step, Torino must make an official offer to Frankfurt, who are interested in signing 21-year-old Argentinian midfielder Nicolas Castro from Newell’s Old Boys. So far they have not done so. Meanwhile, Sebastian Polter is no longer on the Eintracht shopping list. The Bochum center forward joins Schalke 04.
