Manchester United could be involved in bidding war to sign German midfielder

Manchester United Football Club are a side who have often been best at producing their own talents, and nurturing players they have developed. However over the last few transfer windows that method has gone somewhat out of the window, and that looks set to continue over the summer.

The latest reports coming out of Gazzetta Dello Sport say that Manchester United are interested in signing Borussia Dortmund midfielder, Ilkay Gundogan. And the German side are aware of that interest and want to get some sort of bidding war going, involving Manchester City as well.

Ilkay Gundogan was one of the best midfielders in the world a few years ago, but a whole host of injuries have certainly seen him fall from grace somewhat dramatically.

The talent is still there however, and perhaps a change of scenery is what he needs to re-find and re-discover that talent. It is definitely a gamble to bring him in, but its one well worth taking in my opinion.
