The meteoric rise of Mario Gotze - what Arsenal have missed out on in Germany’s next superstar

In Germany, it is very rare that a player changes clubs for an extravagant sum. Players like Mesut Ozil and Nuri Sahin, for example, have recently been poached from the Bundesliga, the two costing a combined price of around €25 million (£21.5m). So, when Arsenal tabled an alleged €40m (£34.5m) offer for Borussia Dortmund playmaker Mario Gotze, they were expecting it to be sufficient.

The story is too old to be commented.

He was more likely to come to United than he was to go to Arsenal. We have actually made contact.
