Arsenal FC and Man Utd target Mario Goetze 'won't guarantee' Dortmund stay


Mario Goetze, who is a target for a number of clubs including Arsenal and Manchester United, has refused to rule out a move away from Borussia Dortmund.

The 19-year-old is a target for most of Europe's elite clubs, with Barcelona, Chelsea, Liverpool, Real Madrid and several sides in Italy also believed to be keen on signing him this year.

Goetze is under contract with Dortmund until 2014 and although earlier this month he revealed he could be open to the idea of extending his stay with the Bundesliga outfit, he has hinted that his future may lie away from the club, although he insists Champions League qualification will not be the main factor in his decision.

He told Kicker: "The Champions League is a great competition. We will hopefully play a better role in it next season. But my further cooperation with BVB doesn't depend on it.

"Anyone who plays for a club like Dortmund can only imagine extending their stay there. But this isn't a current issue. I wouldn't rule it out, but I won't guarantee it."

Dortmund last week agreed a deal to sign Marco Reus from Borussia Monchengladbach. The playmaker, who has agreed a five-year contract and will move at the end of the season, is widely seen as a replacement for Goetze.
