I don't know, I actually always thought that release clause was plausible. At the end of the day, it wouldn't matter for Bayern - Götze probably is the guy they'd meet a €55M clause for. I just didn't think Götze would have entertained that clause this year.

Well, Götze's old contract was only running to 2014, so Dortmund was under a lot of pressure to get him extended. Without an extension, you have the Lewandowski situation. So I could see them being rushed into that kind of release clause, probably not thinking it could matter this soon.
