Update: June 21st, 7:30AM EST — Mario Götze to ink three-year deal with Die Adler

Sport1’s Patrick Berger has been all over this from the get-go and now he is reporting that Eintracht Frankfurt and Mario Götze have agreed on a deal that will keep the 2014 World Cup hero with the club through 2025:

Update Mario Götze: After passing the medical check, the playmaker will sign a 3-year contract with Eintracht Frankfurt until June 30, 2025. The papers were finally negotiated yesterday. #SGE @CMoffiziell @SPORT1

Update: June 19th, 5:30PM EST — Mario Götze nearing deal with Eintracht Frankfurt

According to Sport1’s Patrick Berger, Mario Götze is about to be on his way back to the Bundesliga:

Breaking: Mario Götze is about to return to the Bundesliga! According to @SPORT1 information, the 2014 world champion is largely in agreement with the #SGE. Signature pending. The #Eintracht supervisory board will meet tomorrow and should give the green light. ⚫️⚪️ @CMoffiziell

It looks like the 2014 World Cup hero will be back in his homeland for 2022/23.

Former Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund prodigy Mario Götze enjoyed a successful time in PSV Eindhoven. A couple of clubs are interested in the 2014 World Cup hero and we might see him playing in the Bundesliga again next season!

According to Sport1 sources, Eintracht Frankfurt is seriously interested in the player, and the talks have already begun. Eintracht’s sporting director Markus Krösche is finding ways to improve his attack, and with a complicated contract situation with Daichi Kamada, the signing of Gotze makes sense.

Frankfurt is not the only club interested in the playmaker, as Benfica has already inquired over a potential transfer. Roger Schmidt, who coached Mario at PSV, is the new coach of Benfica and would like to work with the German again in the Portugal club.

Götze has a fixed release clause of just 4 million euros and the race for his signature has already begun — it’s going to be interesting to see where he’s going to play next season!
