It would appear to be time to open up one for next season given this:

Mario Götze to join Bayern Munich from Borussia Dortmund: Munich confirm signing for fee reported as £31.5m

Basically exercised his release clause, which clearly Dortmund set too low. This is the value of Pep: Gotze was 100% happy at Dortmund. Then Pep goes to Munchen, and Gotze's eyes get big.

Gotze and his agents appeared to back door this, not talking to Dortmund until Munich basically determined they would pay the release and whatever terms Gotze wanted. My guess is that Gotze will play for "reasonable wages" to help cover the transfer costs, much like Javi Martinez is playing for cheap wages relative to his massive transfer fee this past summer.

It's also likely that Pep is going to run a number of people. Robben almost certainly will be shown the door.

This is annoying. Another world class player moves that we've sniffed around about in the past, but United is sitting there with their thumb up their asses.

I really hope that when Pep's three years at Munchen are up that SAF retires and Pep can come to United.
