Mario Götze has officially signed for Eintracht Frankfurt from PSV for €4m on a three-year deal until 2025.
The 2014 World Cup winner passed his medical on Tuesday and is due to start training with his new teammates on Monday.
The attacking midfielder will be the club’s highest earner alongside Kevin Trapp.
Frankfurt faced challenges from Benfica and Inter Miami for the 30-year-old but his desire to play Champions League football gave SGE the edge. Benfica would have to qualify via the play-offs and a move to the USA at this stage in his career would be too early for the former Germany international.
Speaking on Sunday, Eintracht defender Martin Hinteregger told Sky Germany: “He would be an excellent fit for us as a player.”
Götze played 52 games in all competitions last season for PSV, scoring 12 and creating 11. His arrival will of course cast further doubt on the future of Daichi Kamada, who is entering the final year of his contract.
