Mario Gotze’s wage demands too high for Atletico Madrid

It was recently confirmed that Mario Gotze is on his way out of Borussia Dortmund after not being offered a new contract.

And the question has been, where will the World Cup-winning playmaker go next?

Serie A has been mentioned as a potential destination for 28-year-old Gotze, with a number of Italian clubs admirers.

However, according to BILD, Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid have recently been a possibility for Gotze.

The problem is, Atletico can only pay him a maximum of €2m-per-season due to the Coronavirus crisis.

For Gotze, who is currently earning a mammoth €10m-per-season at Borussia Dortmund, that is not a very attractive offer.

Gotze’s second chapter at BVB looks to be over, with the German international not in the last four matchday squads.

The premature birth of his son Rome this month meant Gotze has had to be at hospital around the clock.

And the Bundesliga’s strict hygiene rules mean he can only train individually and not with the team.

As a result, Gotze appears to have played his last game for Borussia Dortmund, the club he joined as an 8-year-old.

Gotze has made 21 appearances in the yellow and black in this, his final season at the Westfalenstadion.
