Could Mario Gómez make a U-turn?

Updated: August 12, 2016

On one hand Beşiktaş are exploring several options to add another striker to their squad while on the other hand they’re still holding out hope for Mario Gómez. While closing in on a loan deal for FC Porto’s Vincent Aboubakar, Beşiktaş continue to monitor Mario Gómez’s situation.

Could Mario Gómez possibly make a U-turn?

Mario Gómez devastated the hopes and dreams of Beşiktaş fans on the 20th of July after announcing that he would not be returning to Turkey this summer due to the political situation. However ín the 3 weeks that have passed since Mario Gómez has neither joined Fiorentina’s training camp nor signed a deal with a different club.

The Beşiktaş board have been patiently waiting on a sign from Mario Gómez since then in case he were to change his mind. If Gómez decides that he would once again be open to a return then Beşiktaş will sit down with Fiorentina and discuss terms for a permanent transfer. It should be noted that prior to the political situation in Turkey (attempted coup), Mario Gómez had told Beşiktaş that he wanted to return this season. If he could be convinced that the situation in Turkey has calmed down since last month, he could still make his return.
