Mario Gotze says he would be 'really happy' if Germany team-mate Marco Reus decided to join Bayern Munich from Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund.
Gotze moved to Bayern from Dortmund for £31.5million last summer, and the 2014 World Cup winner is keen for the man three years his senior to follow his lead.
Reus is being monitored by Europe's elite clubs and Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp may have a task on his hands to keep the 25-year-old attacking midfielder at the Westfalenstadion.

Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has revealed he will hold talks with the top brass at the club about whether to swoop for Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus.
The German champions almost signed the 25-year-old when he joined Dortmund two years ago and would not be put off by his buy-out clause, believed to be in the region of £20million.
Bayern have signed Mario Gotze and Robert Lewandowski from Dortmund in the last two summers and Rummenigge has confirmed the Bundesliga champions are weighing up whether to launch a bid for the playmaker, who is being monitored by a host of Premier League clubs, including Manchester City, Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United. read more here
The only lad I know from Galatasaray - and he's Dutch. Wesley Sneijder
Everything has been going splendidly in the Champions League for Borussia Dortmund who will look to finish the first cycle of group stage matches with a perfect record. To do that, they'll need a result in Turkey against Group D's last place team Galatasaray who've managed just a single point from their first two games.
Dortmund's success in Group D is in stark contrast to their poor league form and Jurgen Klopp has to find a way to keep his team playing well in Europe, while trying to get that form to translate to the Bundesliga. Fortunately for Klopp his team is starting to get healthy again with İlkay Gündoğan finally back from an extended injury, while Marco Reus and Henrikh Mkhitaryan are back in form after missing time as well.
Galatasaray have been the opposite of Dortmund playing well in league play but struggling in the Champions League. excellent overview

I like the sixties quiff thing Reus has going on here.
Seriously, it's if as he's a throwback.
Because I know some of y'all be on that suit and tie ish. Let him show you a good thing, eh?
Are they going to burst into song?
Good bye and good luck!
Got asked for Hummels in a suit. So, here we go!
Nothing but close ups of Hummels's face, I'm afraid. He's giving me David Gandy teas here.
That's the face of a player that's fed up, and wants to leave. Don't go, Reus. Not to Bayern, at least?
