VIDEO: €37m man shows why Arsenal, Manchester United wanted him

Mario Götze FIFA WC Qualification 2014 Austria Vs Germany

Mario Gotze, heavily linked with Arsenal and Manchester United last season scored a dazzling goal for Bayern Munich on Wednesday evening.

Mario Gotze's transfer to Bayern Munich from Borussia Dortmund sent shockwaves through the Bundesliga, but there were reported to be a couple of Premier League teams disappointed with the switch.

Arsenal and Manchester United were both heavily linked with his signature, but were caught napping by the German's switch to Bayern, when his release clause was paid.

The 21-year-old is really finding his form at Bayern after a relatively slow first month or so, scoring against former side Dortmund in a 3-0 win at the weekend.

He was in sensational form again last night as Bayern won 3-1 away at CSKA Moscow. Gotze dribbled between defenders, bedazzling them with both feet, and his speed, before firing the ball across the goalkeeper and into the net.

Gotze showing no signs of being intimidated by the hype or his transfer fee, and will certainly go onto make one or two sides wish they took the plunge on him earlier.
