Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has confirmed that Mario Götze will leave the club when his contract expires at the end of the season.

Speaking ahead of Borussia Dortmund's away clash with Wolfsburg on Saturday, Zorc told reporters:


"We will part ways with Mario Götze this summer. It was a mutual and respectful decision. Mario is a great man."

Götze has struggled to find regular playing time for BVB this term, having made just six starts in all competitions in the 2019/20 campaign.

The midfielder is said to be keen on a move abroad, with Italy understood to be his favorite destination.
