“Borussia Dortmund will be severing ties with Mario Gotze when his contract expires in the summer, sporting director Michael Zorc has confirmed.”
The World Cup winner is set to see his current deal with the Bundesliga giants come to a close at the end of the 2019-20 campaign.No fresh terms will be put to him, meaning that the 27-year-old is set to drop into the free-agent pool.”
Gotze has struggled to make the expected impact since returning to Dortmund in 2016 from a three-year spell at Bayern Munich.
With BVB now favoring other options, a highly-decorated product of the club’s academy system will once again be allowed to go in search of new challenges elsewhere.
Zorc told Sky Deutschland:
“I have had a very good conversation with Mario in the past few days. We have agreed that we will not continue our cooperation after the season.
“I think that is in the best interests of both parties.
“Mario is a really good boy and I think this season he will still be important to us.”
