Mario Gotze: Turning his back on Borussia Dortmund

The 20-year-old is using a contract release clause to switch to the Allianz-Arena before the start of next season. In return, Dortmund will receive a transfer fee in the region of 37million Euros.

Hummels said: "It's a real blow. Mario (Gotze) is already among the ten best players in the world.

"Therefore it was a shock. I almost did not sleep the night I got to know about this. When (Shinji) Kagawa left or if (Robert) Lewandowski moves on I am able to see reasons.

"Because they are not from Germany. But this move is a very tough blow for us!"

Hummels joined Dortmund from Bayern Munich's reserve side in 2009.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
