Gotze set for Dortmund return


Mario Gotze is expected to complete his transfer from Bayern Munich to Borussia Dortmund on Thursday, according to Sky in Germany.

Sky in Germany understands Gotze will sign a four-year deal and the fee will be £18.3m (22m Euros) plus additions based on success.

Gotze scored 22 goals in 83 matches for Dortmund between 2009 and 2013, helping them to two Bundesliga titles and a German Cup.

He left for Bayern three years ago in a move that still rankles with some Dortmund supporters, who displayed a banner at a game in April making it clear they would not welcome him back.

However, the deal is on the verge of completion with Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge on Wednesday suggesting ahead of Bayern’s 1-0 win over Manchester City that he expected the deal to be completed on Thursday.

After his side’s pre-season win, Ancelotti said: “I haven’t spoken with the club yet because we were focused only on this game.

“If Gotze leaves the club, then I wish him good luck for the new season, We have a fantastic squad. That’s it, I have nothing else to say.”
