According to Goal.com, Mario Gotze could be offered a lifeline to save his career from a very familiar source.
Indeed, the report suggests that the German midfielder could be on his way to Liverpool in the near future – should their boss decide it’s worth the risk.
A risk it certainly is now, too, despite the Dortmund man being a World Cup winner, given the way that he has let his career slide down hill.
He moved back to his current club from Bayern Munich last summer in a bid to get things back on track but looks well off the pace at the moment and so, you feel, should he arrive at Anfield he’ll really have to knuckle down.
Failure to do so, though, could see him throw his top-class career away for good and where he ends up next really is up for debate.
