Mario Gotze has revealed that he still texts former manager Jurgen Klopp, but a move to Liverpool is not imminent.
Now at Bayern Munich, Gotze has long been linked with a reunion with his former boss, who managed him at Borussia Dortmund from 2009 until his 2013 exit.
With Klopp now manager of Liverpool, it has been reported that Gotze could be a transfer target in the future for the German.
Gotze has endured a difficult time at the Allianz Arena, failing to hold down a regular first-team spot and starting just five Bundesliga games this season.
Speaking to German outlet ZDF TV, Gotze has discussed his future at Bayern, as well as his relationship with Klopp.
“We are texting now and again,” Gotze told ZDF TV. “He was my coach at Borussia Dortmund, but there is nothing special.”
Asked whether a move to Anfield has ever been on the agenda during discussions, Gotze replied: “No.”
On his future: “It hinges on many factors. Everything else will show in the future.
“We are still in the current season but, sure, it’ll be important what the new coach thinks.”
