Manchester United have set their sights on Borussia Dortmund’s teenage sensation Mario Goetze and will look to lure the impressive attacking midfielder to Old Trafford next summer. The German international has been likened to Michael Ballack and has been hugely impressive for the runaway Bundesliga leaders this season, helping them go 13 points clear at the top of the table.

Goetze is considered one of the hottest prospects in European football and is a player that Sir Alex Ferguson has been monitoring for the best part of a year. Borussia Dortmund will battle hard to keep hold of the youngster but he may well have his head turned by such interest from abroad.

The increasingly impressive performances put in by the 18 year old have brought him to the attention of a host of top clubs and have helped him secure his first senior German international cap in November at the age of 18 and the the likes of Man City, Chelsea and Barcelona said to be interested in snapping up the quick thinking playmaker

Reports from Germany suggest that there is an £8m release clause in Goetze contract and this has led to a flurry of speculation that he could well be the subject of numerous bids.
