Bayern Munich have reportedly activated Mario Goetze’s 32-million release clause to bring Borussia Dortmund highly-rated playmaker to Allaiz Arena, according to Borussia Dortmund official Facebook web-page.

The Dortmund announcement read: “Mario Gotze’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.”

Borussia chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke revealed he is sorry that one of their key players decided to part ways with the club, but confirmed the player has not broken his contract to force the move. He said: “We are obviously disappointed beyond measure, but emphasise that both Mario and his advisers have behaved within the terms of the contract.”

Bayern have released an official statement confirming the deal which read: “Bayern Munich confirm that the club have reached an agreement with national team player Mario Gotze that he will play for Bayern Munich from 1 July 2013. Bayern are prepared to meet the release clause agreed between Borussia Dortmund and Mario Gotze.”
