Mario Gomez was one of the higher-profile summer-window candidates for a new club, especially once he announced he wasn't returning to Besiktas - the team that gave him the platform to turn around his previously stuttering form. The rumor mill had its fun, most recently putting the striker in the middle of an alleged tug-of-war between Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund. And, of course, there was the obligatory MLS rumor, that never really gained any traction.
Reports suggest Gomez is signed with the Bundesliga club 'til the summer of 2019 - so it could be a while before he has another cycle through the rumor mill.
See you next time you need a new contract, Mario.
