Gotze has a €4 million release clause in his PSV contract, but the likes of Benfica (Portuguese Liga) and Eintracht Frankfurt (Bundesliga) are also looking to sign him, according to numerous reports. Kicker originally reported Miami’s interest, as well as Transfermarkt.
Miami also have other big-name targets for their final open Designated Player slot, which is expected to be filled during the MLS Secondary Transfer window this summer (runs July 7-Aug. 4). The Herons, through the 2023 MLS season, still face sanctions related to their signing of Blaise Matuidi in 2020, meaning they need to be conscious of value for money on their budget, even with a DP spot.
Gotze, who just turned 30, is enjoying a renaissance with PSV, where he’s had 18 goals and 18 assists in 77 all-competition appearances for the Dutch Eredivisie club.
The midfielder broke through with Dortmund in the 2009-10 season and was a rising star, making a move to Bayern Munich. He was a key part of Germany’s World Cup-winning side in 2014, scoring the game-winning goal in the final against Argentina. Inter Miami striker Gonzalo Higuain was on the field that day for La Albiceleste, too.
Gotze fell out of favor at Bayern by 2015-16 and then returned to Dortmund, though he never quite recaptured his star form. He played only 514 Bundesliga minutes the season before signing for PSV, where he’s looked like his old self.
Miami have 18 points after 14 matches, just one point below the Eastern Conference’s Audi MLS Cup Playoffs line. They travel to face Atlanta United on Sunday (3 pm ET | ESPN2, ESPN Deportes).
