Borussia Dortmund confirm interest in MArio Gotze, admit deal is far from done


It was confirmed over the weekend by Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge that talks were ongoing but an agreement has not been reached.

The 24-year-old Gotze left Dortmund three years ago but has so far failed to make his mark at the Allianz Arena.

"We can imagine Gotze returning to BVB," Watzke stated. "But it is not a done deal yet and no final decisions have been made yet.

"We have not reached an agreement with anyone, not with the club, nor with the player. It has to work out for us financially."

Meanwhile, it appears that BVB may be closing in on the signature of German international Andre Schurrle for a fee reported to be in the region of €32 million.
