Despite showing no signs of slowing down in the Premier League, the former Spanish global only has two more seasons left on his contract at the Etihad, and admits he isn't sure of what his next move will be, despite the constant links with a return to his hometown club, Las Palmas.

He said: "A fantastic week for me - I became a daddy this week!"
"Now he's doing fine and really everything was worth it".

"Other teams have strengthened", he said.
Two more seasons at City? "Liverpool and Chelsea have, United seem to be having some issues".

"It depends on how I feel physically".
"When I don't like one player, at the end of the season I go to the club and say I don't want to work with that guy if it's possible and I want to change them".
"This year it's going to be very exciting", Gotze told Omnisport.
