Gotze, 19, is viewed as one of the world's best young prospects with Barcelona, Real Madrid, Arsenal and Manchester United hot on his trail. However, the German international made it clear where he thinks his future lies.

"The dream of everyone is playing in Spain, Madrid or Barcelona," Gotze said in an interview with the newspaper Bild. "I prefer to play in Spain than in the Premiership, Spanish football is more like my qualities. The dream of every footballer is to play in Spain, there There is very great teams like Madrid or Barcelona."

Gotze played a pivotal role in helping Dortmund win the Bundesliga title last season, and has a contract that runs until 2014. He has already ruled out moving to rivals Bayern Munich, but a bid of £40 million is believed to be enough to tempt the club to part with him.
