PICTURE: Ilkay Gundogan – a bullet dodged?

Manchester United have often been strongly linked with a move for Dortmund central midfielder Ilkay Gundogan. However, the 24-year old German has been out injured with what is believed to be a chronic problem, and as you can see he has piled on the pounds since we last saw him.

Not having played since August 2013 must be extremely frustrating. Last year he was one of the best players in his position in the world, and he surely had a huge future ahead of him. You just wonder whether he’ll be able to recapture the form he had before the serious injury he had, but first and foremost he has to lose that weight.

Saying that though, he’d still be better than anything we have in our current midfield…
