Mario Götze is expected to leave Borussia Dortmund in 2020 if Lucien Favre remains coach of the club, according to Sport Bild.
Götze and Dortmund have been in talks about a potential extension of his contract, which runs out at the end of the season, but the parties have decided to postpone further negotiations until 2020.
The 27-year-old is understood to be unhappy with his current substitute role under Lucien Favre and will most likely depart the club if the 62-year-old, who is under contract until 2021, continues his tenure as coach.
Another potential snag is that Götze would have to take a pay cut to extend his stay at Signal Iduna Park. Borussia Dortmund are willing to offer Götze, who currently earns an annual salary of €10 million, a new contract worth €7,5 million a year, as per Sport Bild.
If Götze indeed leaves Dortmund, he could reportedly imagine moving abroad to join a club in one of Europe's other top leagues.
