Metro have some brilliant news for Manchester United fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern.
They claim that Manchester United are closing in on a signing that could well kick start their awful season.
The club have witnessed disaster after disaster this term and have seriously suffered since former manager Sir Alex Ferguson stepped down.
Now it seems that Borussia Dortmund’s Ilkay Gundogan could well be on his way to Old Trafford, with a £24 million deal in the pipeline.
The German box-to-box midfielder is one of the best in his position in the world and our landlord notes that despite rumours of a new contract being on the table for the BVB player, actually putting pen to paper is a long way off.
Therefore, David Moyes is keen on swooping in and landing him in a signing that has been met with general appreciation by all in the bar.
Whilst the title may be a little bit too far for United this season, a top four finish simply has to come off and the club are determined that new players will come in and help that happen.
In a rather interesting point, some of our punters stop playing pool for a minute and note that BVB are getting used to seeing their top players leave with Robert Lewandowski being the latest to jump ship to Bayern Munich in the summer.
The Bundesliga giants will be helpless to stop Gundogan following him out of the door, should the right bid come in.
Will Manchester United be able to seal the deal for Gundogan? Let us know your thoughts below.
