Mario Gotze: Juventus' new number 10?

German international Mario Gotze is poised to end his torrid spell at Bayern Munich and make a move to Juventus, according to Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Gotze made the switch from Borussia Dortmund to Bayern in 2013 after the Bavarians triggered the €37million buy-out clause in his contract but has since failed to establish himself in the star-studded line-up.

The arrival of Pep Guardiola too was not of much help as the 23-year-old plummeted down the pecking order under the Spanish manager’s reign.

At Juventus, though, Gotze would find greater opportunity given that Bianconeri manager Massimiliano Allergi is in the transfer market for a new number 10.

Speaking to, Gotze expressed his admiration for the Turin outfit, but spoke little about the potential transfer.

"I think that Juventus reached the Champions League final not by chance but because they had a great season last year," said Gotze. "They managed to win titles in the last year and they are a big, big club.

“But at the moment, I don’t want to comment because there’s nothing to say at the moment. I think that playing abroad might be a good experience for me - new languages; new cultures. I might like it.

“Let’s see what the future brings.”

In his two seasons with the German giants Gotze has scored 15 goals in each term yet struggled to cement his position in the absence of Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery.

Despite his bit-part role in Munich, though, it is believed Bayern would include a buy-back clause in the contract should the World Cup winner decide to join Juventus.

The German sensation would come at a heft price - likely to be around €50 million - but as an astute attacking midfielder able to play down the centre or out wide, he would certainly give Allergi his moneys worth.
