Man Utd News: Mario Gotze move ON, Rudiger’s transfer revelation, Van Gaal’s tough target
MANCHESTER UNITED have been alerted to the availability of Germany World Cup winner Mario Gotze after he admitted ‘a move abroad would certainly not be bad.’
The Bayern Munich star has played in the Bundesliga throughout his professional career, but a move to the Premier League now appears high on his agenda.
Gotze said: “I might play for another 14 years, and a move abroad would certainly not be bad.
“A foreign country would also be tempting for someone of my personality, but I have not given it serious thought yet.”
United fans are likely to be elated by Gotze’s admission, and believe with their considerable financial muscle could secure the German on a long-term deal.

Manchester United targeted Antonio Rudiger during the summer [GETTY ]
Fellow German Antonio Rudiger has hinted that a future move to Old Trafford is not beyond the realms of possibility.
The Stuttgart defender was the subject of a transfer enquiry from United during the summer, however any such move failed to materialise.
Rudiger is still just 21-years-old and has plenty of time to make a ‘dream’ move to the Premier League.
“The enquiry honours me, it makes me proud. But I focus on the VFB, and I will continue to grow.
“What might happen sometime in the future, I do not know. This is of course a top international address. And they play in the league of which I dream.”
United chiefs have set Louis Van Gaal the tough task of securing a third-place finish despite their stuttering start.
The Dutch chief has invested over £150m on players this summer, and must show results for the sizeable outlay.
Executive vice chairman Ed Woodward said: “I am confident with Louis Van Gaal as our manager, a clear philosophy and a reinvigorated squad we will get back to challenging for title and the trophy.”
