Man Utd to bid for £20M Borussia Dortmund star Goetze after Sneijder snub

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is lining up a bid for Borussia Dortmund dynamo Mario Goetze. The Sunday Express says United have switched their attention to Goetze after becoming frustrated in their attempt to sign Inter Milan playmaker Wesley Sneijder.

United watched 19-year-old Goetze run the midfield in Germany's 3-2 win against Brazil in Stuttgart last week, a high-profile friendly in which he also scored.

Goetze is rated the best young talent in the Bundesliga after helping Borussia land the title last season, and he has attracted the interest of Real Madrid and Barcelona. United know they would have a fight to persuade Dortmund to sell.

But the youngster has admitted: "Who would not dream of playing with a club like Real Madrid, Barcelona or Manchester United?"

Goetze is contracted at Dortmund until 2014 and is valued at £20million.
