Manchester United are reportedly interested in Tottenham target Mario Goetze.

The 18-year-old has received rave reviews for his performances this season in Borussia Dortmund’s seemingly unstoppable pursuit of the Bundesliga crown and, hence, has attracted interest from across Europe.

Sportingo initially reported last week that Spurs were closely monitoring the playmaker – who has been hailed by Matthias Sammer as one of the best talents Germany has ever produced – and the White Hart Lane club were tipped to make a summer move.

The teenager is understood to have impressed Harry Redknapp as well as Spurs scouts but Dortmund are adamant that they will hold on to their prized asset – telling potential suitors that it would take at least £20 million to make them consider letting Goetze leave.


It has now emerged that Spurs will have to battle with Manchester United for the Germany international after Bild reported that the Old Trafford club despatched representatives to view the youngster at close quarters.

According to talkSPORT, Goetze could prove to be the ideal replacement for United legend Paul Scholes who is edging closer towards the end of his Old Trafford career.

The 36-year-old has enjoyed a vintage season thus far and is expected to be offered a contract extension in the summer to keep him at Old Trafford for another year.

Along with Goetze, Daniel De Rossi and Sotiris Ninis have been touted as potential successors for Scholes, who continues to play a key role in United’s pursuit of Barclays Premier League glory.
