Bayern Munich 'discussed bringing back free agent Mario Gotze'

He spent three years at Bayern between 2013 and 2016.Gotze is a free agent after announcing his decision to leave Signal Iduna Park at the end of last season, but has not yet found a new club.
He's accused clubs of trying to take advantage of the financial situation Charlton find themselves in as they remain under a transfer embargo with new owners trying to take charge.
Bowyer told London News Online: “People are taking liberties with their offers. They are silly offers which we wouldn’t entertain.
“The offers come to Steve [Gallen, director of football] and then it goes to the directors. The directors have said they are not for sale. We bought Macauley as a project and so far he is developing well.
“If we hadn’t done a good job with him there wouldn’t be any interest in him.
“For us as a club, why would we sell Macauley now? Unless it was some crazy offer then we wouldn’t sell Macauley. It would be tough to replace him. So it doesn’t make sense.
“Alfie comes into that bracket as well. Whatever the offer was [by Celtic] it’s not enough. That’s all that matters. It doesn’t matter if they’d offered £1m if we’ve said no and value him at more than that.”
It's not the first time the former Newcastle star has been left angry with transfers to Scotland after he criticised Joe Aribo for making the move toinstead of Brentford.
He also insisted last week that Doughty is destined for the English Premier League and should knock back any offers from Celtic.
