Borussia Dortmund’s Mario Gotze would “definitely fit in the Spanish league” due to his ability to “handle the ball”, according to Marc-Andre ter Stegen.
Gotze’s current contract at Dortmund is set to expire this summer, at which point he will become a free agent – with no new terms over an extension on the table.
The 27-year-old returned to Westfalenstadion for a second spell from Bayern Munich back in 2017, but has failed to rediscover his best form amid an ongoing battle against a muscle disorder.
Barcelona and Germany goalkeeper Ter Stegen would like to see Gotze move to La Liga, with it his belief that a fellow countryman still has enough quality to “make a difference for many clubs”.
The Blaugrana number one told the Kicker meets DAZN podcast: “Mario is a player who can handle the ball and advance the game. He would definitely fit in the Spanish league.
“Whether his goal is to play football – I don’t know. When we talk to each other, we never talk about football.
“For me, it is only important that he makes the right decision and that he is happy. It would suit a lot of clubs and can make a difference for many clubs.”
