Manchester United`s long held apparent desire to bring the Borussia Dortmund midfielder, Ilkay Gundogan on board could have moved a step closer.

Dortmund have made it clear to the media that Gundogan will be severing his ties with the Bundesliga outfit to pursue his career elsewhere.

It`s also believed that the fee for the 24-year-old will be around the £18 million mark, a reasonable fee for a player held in such high esteem.

Unfortunately, there are two elements to this possible move that concern us.

Firstly, we should point out that due to injuries Gundogan has made a mere 19 appearances in the last two seasons and secondly, it appears that the champions-elect, Chelsea, are also showing an interest in the player now!
