United will know if Gundogan is available in three weeks

Manchester United will know if they have any hope of signing Borrusia Dortmund’s Ilkay Gundogan in around three weeks, as the German club want his future to be sorted out before the end of the season. Borrusia Dortmund’s Chief Executive Hans-Joachim Watzke has suggested that contract talks will not be dragged out by the midfielder.

You get the impression that Watzke wants a deal done sooner rather than later, and Dortmund are growing increasingly frustrated with the amount of time Gundogan is taking to make a decision.

The 24-year old midfielder has spent much of this season on the treatment table, but it seems obvious that his club still want the player to sign a new deal despite that.
Hans-Joachim Watzke said:

“The fact that we would like to extend the contract of Ilkay Gundogan is clear. But there’s always more to it.

“We also have a certain degree of respect for his long medical history, which of course has charged him and is why he wants to look further into how his body can be kept fit.” He added.

“This will certainly not be a never-ending story. We will use the next few weeks together to make a decision and we are in contact with Ilkay and his family, who also advise him.”

  1. Gundogan is amazing, when he is fit, he can be one of the world’s best players, even though he has a bad fitness record, we can help him improve. Also he will get more playing time if he comes to Utd rather than Real Madrid. I say: SIGN GUNDOGAN
