Berlin: Germany's midfield star Mario Goetze can leave Bundesliga champions Borussia Dortmund as early as next year -- for at least 37 million euros (US$47.7m), according to a report here.
The 20-year-old extended his Dortmund contract in March which sees him tied to Borussia until 2016, with a clause in his deal allowing him to leave in 2013 for a minimum of 37 million euros, reported German magazine Sport Bild.
He can also leave at a later date before his deal expires with a sliding scale of cost.
Goetze has attracted plenty of attention after Dortmund's impressive performances in the Champions League with the German champions top of Group D ahead of Real Madrid, Ajax and Manchester City.
Gotze's agent Volker Struth says his client has no plans to leave Dortmund next year.
