Mario Götze has fuelled speculation that he could leave Borussia Dortmund in the summer by admitting that joining a club like Manchester United would be “lovely”.

The 20-year-old has been regularly linked with a move away from Dortmund after playing a key role Jürgen Klopp’s side who won back-to-back Bundesliga titles in 2011 and 2012.

Götze, who has a contract at the Westfalenstadion until 2016, has scored 14 goals in 36 appearances for Dortmund this season, and the Germany international is keeping his options open ahead of the summer transfer window.

“I am not going to rule it out, I am keeping my options open,” Götze told Sport1.

“I am enjoying being a Borussia Dortmund player and I am happy with how things are right now.

“A move is not on the cards yet, it’s still some way off.

“But Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Manchester United are great clubs in top competition, they would be lovely.

“Playing in the top competitions could help shape me as a player. I could develop from making such a move.”
