Mario Goetze stunned by Chelsea and Manchester United rumours

Borussia Dortmund’s young prolific attacking midfielder Mario Goetze is shocked by the rumours linking him with a move to English Premier League outfits Manchester United and Chelsea Football Club.

The 18-year-old playmaker has been a sensational discovery for Dortmund. He has played a vital part in Die Borussians supreme run in the 2010-11. The German international has sublime passing skills and provides an elegant presence in the centre of the pitch.

After the most recent transfer rumours, the highly-rated playmaker said, “I read that these teams are interested in me and the news stunned me. The teams mentioned are the ones I play for every day on the Play station. I am lucky enough to play for Borussia since I am very young. I do not know to what extent these rumours are true.”

The youngster was rated very high in the Dortmund’s youth club. But he never managed to show his true potential, as the Borussians had another prodigious playmaker Shinji Kagawa pulling the strings in the attacking third. Kagawa’s absence has hardly been noted owing much to the youngster’s excellent play-making skills in the middle of the park.

After Kagawa left to represent his national side in the recently concluded AFC Asia Cup held in Qatar, he was replaced with Goetze in the playing eleven by team manager Jurgen kloop. Kagwa suffered a season ending injury in Qatar. Thus, Goetze was assured of the first team action for the remainder of the season. The 18-year-old then proved his sublime passing skills.

German Bundesliga produced prodigious talent on a conveyor belt during the recent years. The rapid rise of Thomas Mueller, Mesut Ozil, Sami Khedira and Holger Badstuber to stardom is not a secret. Ozil and Khedira have won moves to the glittering halls of Real Madrid.

Goetze’s performances were noticed. As a result, European top-notch clubs are looking to take his signature. Manchester City were looking to sign the youngster in the winter transfer market. However, the English side was unable to strike a deal and splashed the cash on David Silva instead.

German clubs have spent millions on developing youth facilities and nurturing young talent. However, the continued departure of quality players to more illustrious leagues remains a cause of concern. If the current rate of players’ transfer continues, German Bundesliga will lose all the talent to the poachers and lose out the hard earned UEFA coefficient third place to Italy, having wrestled the place after years of hard work.
