Recent reports emanating from Europe state that long-time target, Borussia Dortmund star Ilkay Gundogan, may finally be on his way to the Old Trafford; with reports confirming that talks between the two parties over the player’s transfer have reached advanced levels.
The Red devils have in recent times intensified their manhunt for a complete player; with the likes of Gundogan, Southampton of England man Morgan Schneiderlin and German power-house Bastian Schweinsteiger all being linked with possible transfers to United in recent times. According to exclusive reports, the club’s move for other target, Saints midfielder, Morgan Schneiderlin looks to be slowing its pace; and it appears that the Borussia Dortmund man would instead join United; with the reports further stating that a deal of around £30 million has been finalised.
The 24 year old versatile midfielder, who was a key component of Dortmund’s 2014/2015 Bundesliga season, is one of several high-profile players set to depart the club in the summer transfer window; with the Club Chief reportedly stating recently that a deal ‘may be announced’ next week.
The strong midfielder would definitely be a shrewd acquisition by United manager Louis van Gaal, as the club looks to mount a firmer challenge for the 2015/2016 English Premier league title.
