Goetze’s move to Dortmund imminent

Bayern Munich's Mario Goetze is on the brink of a move to Borussia Dortmund. German daily Bild reports that the midfielder has agreed terms with his former club.


The fee is believed to be in the region of between 23 million (27 million dollars) and 27 million euros. Dortmund’s general manager Hans-Joachim Watzke has refused to confirm the reports.

Goetze moved to Bayern three years ago for 37 million euros but has struggled to hold down a place in the starting eleven, with coach Pep Guardiola using him mainly as a squad player.

Before Euro 2016, Goetze had expressed a desire to stay at Bayern and fight for his place, but subsequent statements from the club’s general manager Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and incoming coach Carlo Ancelotti gave him little hope of doing so.

Goetze would strengthen a Dortmund side weakened by the loss of star players Mats Hummels (Bayern), Henrikh Mkhitaryan (Manchester United) and Ilkay Guendogan (Manchester City) for a combined sum of more than 100 million euros.
