Mario Gotze joins Europa League winners Eintracht Frankfurt from PSV for £3.4m – and the midfielder is set to face former club Bayern Munich on the opening day of the Bundesliga season
Former Germany international Mario Gotze joined Europa League winners Eintracht Frankfurt on Tuesday in a three-year-deal, returning to the Bundesliga after two years at Dutch club PSV Eindhoven.
The attacking midfielder, who scored Germany’s winning goal in the 2014 World Cup final against Argentina, rediscovered his form at the Dutch club following his 2020 move from Borussia Dortmund.

‘This club has made an unusual development and has taken an ambitious and interesting path along which I can accompany it,’ Gotze said in an Eintracht statement.
‘I am looking forward to my return in the Bundesliga.’
The 30-year-old started his career at Dortmund before joining Bayern Munich for a three-year spell in 2013 and then returning to Dortmund.

A five-time German league champion, Gotze struggled to hold down starting spots both at Bayern and Dortmund in his second spell, prompting a move to Eindhoven.
The league starts on August 5 with Eintracht taking on champions Bayern.
