Manchester United look set to beat both Barcelona and Bayern Munich in the race to sign Ilkay Gündoğan after ‘largely’ agreeing personal terms with the 24-year-old according to the German Daily newspaper ‘WAZ‘.
The report states that sources within Borussia Dortmund have suggested that Gündoğan is close to a move to Old Trafford despite interest from Bayern and Barcelona.
The Red Devil’s have yet to reach an agreement with Dortmund for the Germany international’s transfer fee but Gündoğan is expected to leave in the summer.
The 24-year-old rejected Dortmund’s proposal to extend his contract and the Bundesliga outfit want to cash out before he becomes a free agent.
Gündoğan recently revealed that he has also held talks with both Bayern Munich and Barcelona.
“We are holding talks yes, but no decision has been made. I can’t say more than that on this,” Gündoğan replied when asked whether he was learning Catalan or Bavarian.
Gündoğan has five assists and three goals in 32 appearances for Dortmund despite spending much of the season out injured and is almost certain to leave the Bundesliga giants over the summer.
