Mario Gotze has been linked with a return to Borussia Dortmund, but a section of supporters left the club's hierarchy in doubt as to their thoughts on a potential move with an unflattering banner in Saturday's 3-2 win over Werder Bremen.
Gotze, who came through Dortmund's youth academy, controversially joined rivals Bayern Munich in 2013 after the Bavarian club triggered a reported €37million release clause.
The Germany international was a key figure in his first two seasons at Bayern, but injury has hampered his form in 2015-16 and he has made just three appearances since the start of October for the Bundesliga champions.
