Ilkay Gundogan could still make Manchester United move

Borussia Dortmund midfielder Ilkay Gundogan still hasn’t made any decisions about his future, amidst speculation he could make a switch to either Manchester United or Real Madrid. However the 23-year old midfielder is currently focused on getting himself fit again, after only playing one league game this season due to injury.

The Germans contract expires in June 2015, meaning there are just eighteen months left on his current deal. Dortmund will be forced to sell if he hasn’t penned a deal in the summer, as they won’t want a similar situation to what happened with Robert Lewandowski.

Speaking to Bild, Gundogan said:

“I have not made a final decision yet. BVB are the first team I am talking to.

“I will soon make a well-thought decision. But I am keeping my options open at this point.

“Borussia Dortmund have not set me an ultimatum. I am just trying to get healthy again and get back to my best form. That’s the main priority for BVB and for myself.”

If he does make a switch away from Dortmund, Real Madrid are the current favourites. However he isn’t guaranteed a first-team spot in Madrid, meaning United could also be a likely option as he’d be without doubt our first choice midfielder.

Shinji Kagawa could also be used as part of the deal, as it hasn’t really happened for him at United and Dortmund’s manager, Jurgen Klopp is reportedly still keen on bringing Kagawa back to the Westfalenstadion
