Red Devils close in on German midfield supremo Ilkay Gundogan…

Manchester United are the strong favourites to sign Borussia Dortmund midfield ace Ilkay Gundogan, and could complete a £25m deal in the summer, reports the Daily Star.
The 23-year-old established himself as one of the best midfielders in Europe last season, helping his side reach the Champions League final with a series of barnstorming performances. Injuries have ruined this term however, and he’s only made the solitary Bundesliga appearance.
United though have already seen enough of the German international to want to bring him to Old Trafford this summer, in what could be a huge transfer window for David Moyes’s side.
Gundogan can drive through the centre of the park, and get into the box late and score goals. He provides more thrust and dynamism than Michael Carrick or Tom Cleverley, and is technically better than Marouane Fellaini.
Any move would be dependant on the player proving he’s recovered from his injury, but if he does so, United could use Shinji Kagawa as part of any swap deal. The Japanase playmaker shone at Dortmund before joining United two summers ago, but has failed to live up to lofty expectations in England.
