Borussia Dortmund starlet Mario Gotze is set to disappoint his suitors according to the player’s agent.
Gotze, who has been called "Germany’s Lionel Messi" has seduced Europe’s biggest clubs, with English Premier League duo Arsenal and Manchester United, along with Bayern Munich and Inter, all keen on snaring him from Jurgen Klopp’s Dortmund.
But the 19-year-old is not planning on exiting the Ruhr giants and will turn down offers from elsewhere – no matter how tempting.
"We haven’t had any contact with Inter, nor have we spoken to anyone in Spain, England or Germany itself", said Gotze’s agent Volker Struth to Calcio Mercato when responding to the latest transfer speculation to have swirled around the attacking midfielder.
Struth then went even further, ruling out any chance that the Germany international will quit the Bundesliga champions in the near future.
"The player is very happy in Dortmund and has a contract until 2014.
"And he is very unlikely to change teams before that date."
While Gotze’s loyalty to Dortmund is admirable, it will not put off his suitors from making a big money bid next summer – though the ball remains clearly in the German side’s court.
