Agent admits Man Utd keen on Borussia Dortmund star Mario Gotze

The agent of Borussia Dortmund midfielder Mario Gotze has confirmed the interest of Manchester United.

The agent of Borussia Dortmund midfielder Mario Gotze has confirmed the interest of Manchester United.

His agent, Dirk Hebel, claims several of Europe's top clubs are chasing the attacking midfielder, who has not featured for Dortmund since December 11th due to a groin injury.

Hebel named United and Juve as two suitors who have been in touch over Gotze but insists the Bundesliga club will not let him leave for less than €40million (£33m).

The agent told calciomercato.com: "I think in Europe all the top clubs are interested in Mario.

"I can confirm that I have had contact with Juventus and Manchester United, but not only them.

"I don't know if he'll go away after this season, you should ask the Borussia. But I think that they will not let him leave for less than 40 million euros.

"He still is very happy at Dortmund, though now he is injured."
