It seems like Manchester United and Arsenal hardly have a chance now as Barcelona and Real Madrid jump in to the race to sign Borsussia Dortmund’s Ilkay Gundogan.
El Confidencial claims that Barcelona have become more alert in this race but they will apparently have to face a tough time in convincing Gundogan that Barca are the right team for him.
The report also claims that Gundogan has apparently told Wenger that he will not play for the North Londoners. The reason for this is reportedly the fact that Gundogan really wants to join Real Madrid. This has also forced United to plan otherwise as the player does not want to join any other team.
Gundogan’s prospect move to Madrid seems a little less likely in January as Dortmund are in trouble due to a number of injuries and the player is an essential part of the Dortmund squad.
