Gotze’s lack of first team football alerts Man United and Chelsea

Bayern Munich star Mario Gotze has alerted the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea, and Arsenal with concerns over the lack of first-team football at the Allianz Arena, Express reports.

Gotze joined Bayern in a controversial £32.5m move from Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund last summer, but the German international has only started 29 games in all competitions.

Yet despite this, the 21-year-old has scored 15 goals and provided 13 assists this season.

His unease of being on the bench has alerted the Premier League’s elite clubs, with Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal keeping an eye on the attacker.

With Germany one of the favourites to challenge for the World Cup this year, Gotze should play a vital role in order to establish himself as a necessity in the Bayern Munich lineup.

The attacker came out to say: “Of course I am not happy (with first-team action).

“But I will continue to work hard and fight for a place in the first XI.

“I hope I am able to regain the trust of the manager and play regularly from the start.”

Arsenal and Chelsea may have a slight advantage to the Red Devils’ chances of landing Gotze, with the Gunners already containing some German stars in Per Mertesacker, Mesut Ozil, and Lukas Podolski whilst the Blues have Andre Schurrle and Marko Marin.
