The Bundesliga champions are preparing to sell Mario Gotze after securing the services of the Dortmund star.
It was a move that will give Carlo Ancelotti a much needed reinforcement at the back of the line-up after Mario Gotza was loaned out to Bayern Munich.
Ancelotis side is currently looking to sign another attacking player after acquiring Marco Reus from Juventus.
Gotze, 23, is currently with Borussia Dortmund in Germany and has been linked with moves to Manchester City, Tottenham and Manchester United.
But it seems Ancelo is keen to keep his star man, who has been one of the top scoring players in the Bundesliga this season.
Gotz was also a target of former Bayern manager Carlo Anelli, who is now at Tottenham.
