Mario Goetze: Heading to Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich have confirmed Mario Gotze will join them in July.

The Bundesliga champions are prepared to meet the Germany attacking midfielder's £32million release clause in his contract with Borussia Dortmund.

Bayern announced the signing in a statement on their official website after Dortmund earlier revealed the player had told them he wanted to make the move.

The Dortmund statement read: "Mario Goetze's agent Volker Struth told us a few days ago that the player wishes to make use of his release clause and on July 1, 2013 move to Bayern Munich."

Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke said: "We are obviously disappointed beyond measure, but emphasise that both Mario and his advisers have behaved within the terms of the contract."
