Manchester United set to beat Arsenal for German midfielder

According to reports in various English and German media outlets, Germany international, Ilkay Gundogan is all set to complete a dream move to Manchester United by the end of next week. The midfielder is currently under contract at Borussia Dortmund but following the departure of Jurgen Klopp, has expressed his desire to play in the Premier League where he believes that he will have a better chance of winning titles and further his development.

The midfielder had a few injury worries last season but now that he is fully recovered, wants to give his best to a new team. Initially, Arsenal were very keen on signing Gundogan but with the Gunners failing to table an offer, is happy to secure a move to Old Trafford where he might even be able to play with fellow German international, Bastian Schweinsteiger.

The Red Devils are also hoping to bring in Mats Hummels from BVB but that particular deal will need a lot of time to be completed provided the Germans are willing to let go of the club’s defensive linchpin.
