Mario Gotze: Milan is ready to battle with Benfica for the PSV ace 

Ac Milan

AC Milan is reportedly showing interest in the PSV Eindhoven midfielder Mario Gotze as per the report from Sport1 journalist Patrick Berger

The 30-year-old started his career brilliantly at Borussia Dortmund. And he was deemed to be one of the hottest prospects in German football. However, things didn’t pan out quite well for the midfielder. 

But, he has marked his name in the history of German football by scoring the solitary goal in the World Cup 2014 final against Argentina. And that goal helped Die Mannschaft win their fourth world cup title. 

Meanwhile, Mario Gotze has tried to find a new challenge away in Eredivisie with PSV. He has enjoyed a decent spell in Eindhoven, scoring four goals and notching up as many assists in 29 appearances in the league. 

After Benfica have announced the PSV boss Roger Schmidt will be taking over their managerial role next season. The German boss is keen on bringing the 30-year-old with him to the Portuguese capital. 

Meanwhile, as per Patrick Berger, Milan have now also joined the race to sign the PSV ace. The Rossoneri have already held talks with the player’s representatives. And the midfielder has a €4-5 million release clause in his current contract. 

Will Milan manage to sign Mario Gotze this summer? 

The Rossoneri need to sign a new attacking midfielder this summer. After Brahim Diaz has failed to showcase his talent this season. So, signing a creative midfielder will be a shrewd decision by the club’s hierarchy. 

However, signing Mario Gotze will be a huge gamble for AC Milan. The German has struggled to play at the highest level due to his health issues. And he has struggled with his injury problems as well over the years. 

So, it will be interesting to see what the Rossoneri decide to do about the 30-year-old. It is highly likely that the midfielder will follow his manager and join Benfica.
