Gundogan is set to sign a new deal at Dortmund.
Borussia Dortmund midfielder Ilkay Gundogan is set to reject the approaches of Arsenal, Manchester United and Real Madrid and sign a new deal at the club, according to the player’s agent.
Irfan Gundogan – who is also the 22-year-old’s father – has revealed that it is too soon for the Germany international to move away from Westfalenstadion and will get his son to pen a new contract.
“I am keen to ensure he (Ilkay) remains with Borussia Dortmund,” Gundogan senior was quoted on Sky Sports.
“He is doing fine so it’s a bit early to move to a club in England or Spain at this point in time.
“Borussia Dortmund will be coming up with an offer of a new contract soon. We will be able to oversee things much better then.”
It’s the second time this summer that the player has had to have his commitment to the Bundesliga runner-up reiterated, with the Gunners, Madrid and United all sniffing around the talented midfielder.
Gundogan has been impressing much of Europe’s elite following a £4.8m switch to Dortmund in 2011, which was immediately followed with a German league title that season.
The past two terms have seen the German really excel for the club and he was a key member of the Champions League campaign last season – playing all but one of Dortmund’s matches on the road to eventual defeat in the final at the hands of rivals Bayern Munich.
Gundogan will have to battle to get into the Dortmund side in the upcoming season however, with strong competition in central midfield from the likes of Sebastian Kehl, Lars Bender and Nuri Sahin.
