Mario Gotze: Joining Bayern on July 1 in a 37m euros deal

Gotze will officially become a Bayern player on July 1 after the European champions completed the 37million euros signing of the Germany midfielder - a deal confirmed by the Bavarian club on the eve of Dortmund's Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid.

The timing of the announcement was frustrating to Dortmund, but Hummels was even more "annoyed" by its content.

"Everybody could see how good our team is," he said. "I just don't think there was or is any reason in sporting terms to leave us.

"You could see how our team had developed and Mario got on so well with many, which is why it annoyed me so much that he made up his mind that he had to leave so soon."

Hummels, who made the move in the opposite direction three years ago and has also been linked with a return to Bayern, has told Gotze how he feels.

"It came as a surprise to all of us in the team," he told Sport Bild magazine. "I have told him that."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
