Official: Mario Gotze to leave Borussia Dortmund

Mario Gotze will leave Borussia Dortmund when his contract expires on June 30, sporting director Michael Zorc has confirmed.

Speaking to Sky Sport in Germany, Zorc announced an amicable parting of ways with Gotze at the end of the season.

“We will end the cooperation with Mario in the summer,” Zorc said. “It is a joint decision after a clear conversation. Mario is a really good guy.”

The 27-year-old is a youth product of BVB and rejoined the club in 2013 after three years with Bayern Munich.

Gotze, the man whose goal won Germany the 2014 World Cup, has never reached the heights of his younger days.

However, there will be no shortage of interest in the playmaker, with Italian clubs in particular interested.

Under coach Lucien Favre, Gotze has struggled for game time at Dortmund, with just five Bundesliga starts this term.
