Mario Gotze is expected to re-join Borussia Dortmund, complete with his tail between his legs, after deciding to leave Bayern Munich this month.

The 24-year-old has reportedly agreed personal terms with his former employers, who are close to striking a deal with their domestic rivals.

But why isn’t he moving to Liverpool? The Anfield faithful have every reason to ask themselves that very question given the excellent relationship between the playmaker and Jurgen Klopp.

The two men worked together at Signal Iduna Park and remain friends, despite the fact Gotze walked out on BVB for Bayern in the summer of 2013.

So, eyebrows were understandably raised when it was reported that Klopp had abruptly ended his interest in the World Cup winner.

Klopp felt Gotze was 'using' Liverpool's interest

The Telegraph claim to know why Klopp decided against pursuing his interest in the player.

The charismatic German coach reportedly felt that Gotze was using Liverpool as a back-up option in negotiations with Borussia Dortmund and decided to pull the plug on any potential deal.

Klopp will only sign players who want to be at Anfield - and Gotze, it seems, always had his heart set on a return to Dortmund.
