Borussia Dortmund is bringing back forward Mario Goetze from Bayern Munich.
Goetze left Dortmund for Bayern in 2013 but never settled down and was mostly a bench player under previous coach Pep Guardiola. New Bayern coach Carlo Ancelotti had a talk with Goetze before assuming the post and reportedly did not try to keep the forward who scored the winning extra-time goal that gave Germany the World Cup title over Argentina at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
At the European Championship in France that ended earlier this month, Goetze did not play a major role.
Dortmund said Thursday that Goetze will sign a four-year contract once he’s passed the medical examination. Details of the deal were not released.
