Manchester United’s move for Ilkay Gundogan has been a rather quick one, with Sky Sports confirming that a deal was close last night. Today more developments have taken place, as the German midfielder has been left out of Dortmund’s match day squad.
The German side say that the 24-year old has a ‘sore throat’, which is a bit hard to believe considering what has gone on over the past 24 hours.
Its a genuine possibility that Gundogan is on his way to Manchester to discuss terms with the club, and possibly even sign the contract ahead of a summer move to Old Trafford.
The fee being mentioned is just over the £20million mark, which is quite expensive for a player with just a year on his current deal, but he’ll certainly come in and make Manchester United a much better team.
