Mario Gotze has revealed he is on texting terms with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.
But the Bayern Munich midfielder, frequently linked with a move to Anfield, insists they have not discussed a potential transfer.
The German World Cup winner was a key figure in Klopp’s Champions League final-reaching Borussia Dortmund side - and on Staurday returned from a five month injury absence to feature in Bayern’s 5-0 defeat over Werder Bremen.
“We are texting now and again,” Gotze told ZDF TV. “He was my coach at Borussia Dortmund, but there is nothing special.”
Asked whether they had discussed a potential transfer to Anfield, Gotze replied: “No.”
Gotze featured for 54 minutes on Saturday and said: “It was nice to return. I am just pleased that I was able to play again.”
But he refused to be drawn on his future.
He said: “It hinges on many factors. Everything else will show in the future.”
Carlo Ancelotti is set to take over from Manchester City bound Pep Guardiola this summer and Gotze added: “We are still in the current season but, sure, it’ll be important what the new coach thinks.”
Bayern sporting executive Matthias Sammer said the club will “analyse the situation in the summer” and added: “We also have to see what the player wants.”
