Eredivisie giants PSV have completed the move for German forward Mario Gotze on a free transfer.
Gotze left Borussia Dortmund at the end of last season and after being linked with a move to different clubs, he managed to join the PSV project for the next two years.
Conforming Gotze’s arrival, PSV said: “PSV have signed 28-year-old Mario Götze from Borussia Dortmund on a two-year deal. The 63-time capped German international joins PSV on a free transfer after his contract with the Bundesliga club had expired.
On his part, PSV Director of Football John de Jong said: “Mario became interested after our head coach Roger Schmidt had gotten in touch with him. And in the end, he proved to be the godsend we had hoped for. We are delighted he has signed a contract with PSV. We are very proud.”
Gotze added: “We had some nice talks and I seriously considered making a move to the Netherlands. I had a lot of offers this summer but I am a man of feeling and make my own decisions. I feel I am ready for a very different challenge and I am confident that this should be a very comfortable transition for me.”
Götze was Germany’s hero when he scored an extra-time goal which earned Germany victory in the 2014 FIFA World Cup final against Argentina and arrives at the club after making 21 appearances for Dortmund last season.
