Mario Götze’s return to the Bundesliga is perfect! The 2014 world champion is moving to Eintracht Frankfurt. The 30-year-old signs a contract with the Hessians until 2025 and “is really looking forward to Eintracht”.
World Cup hero Mario Götze is back in the Bundesliga and will play for Europa League winners Eintracht Frankfurt in the future. The 30-year-old is moving from the Dutch first division club PSV Eindhoven to Hessen, as the Bundesliga club confirmed on Tuesday. The winner of the 2014 final against Argentina in Rio de Janeiro is thus back in Germany almost two years after leaving Borussia Dortmund.
He will receive a contract on Main until 2025. Neither club made any statements about the transfer modalities, around four million euros were discussed. The 63-time national player was under contract in Eindhoven until June 30, 2024. Götze had already stopped participating in training at the Dutch top club on Monday. On Tuesday he first passed the medical check in Frankfurt and then signed the contract.
Eintracht sporting director Markus Krösche was happy: “The fact that a player like Mario Götze, after numerous offers, decided to go with Eintracht Frankfurt with conviction speaks for the outstanding image that the club has developed over the past few years. I don’t have to waste a lot of words about the footballing qualities. We’ve been missing a type of player like him so far. Mario’s technical skills will help our game enormously, especially when we have possession of the ball against deep opponents. In addition, he can bring his strengths to bear in almost any offensive position, which gives us even more tactical variability. Last but not least, he brings with him many years of experience at the top international level.”
Mario Götze added: “I’m really looking forward to Eintracht Frankfurt. This club has undergone an extraordinary development and has embarked on an exciting and ambitious path, on which I can now accompany the club. The talks with Markus Krösche and Oliver Glasner quickly showed that we have and are pursuing the same goals and ideas. This club has a great foundation. From the stadium to the fans to the city, everything just suits me. I’m really looking forward to my return to the Bundesliga. In addition, we have the chance to play in the Champions League.”
