Manchester United target in talks with Barcelona

Manchester United target Ilkay Gundogan has admitted he is in negotiations with Barcelona following reports in Germany stating the midfielder is now unlikely to join Bayern Munich.

The 24-year-old Borussia Dortmund star is a free agent this summer with his contract set to expire at the end of June.

United have been closely linked with a move for the creative midfielder, who made 23 Bundesliga appearances for Dortmund this season after battling a serious back injury.

Barcelona have also been tracking Gündogan’s performances and he has now confirmed that talks are ongoing with the Spanish champions.

“Yes, we are negotiating. I have not taken any decision yet but I’m open to all possibilities. We do not know where I will play,” he was quoted as saying in Spanish newspaper Marca.

According to a Bild report on Tuesday, they are no longer talks between Bayern Munich and Ilkay Gundogan.

Wolfsburg scored three times in 16 minutes to come back from a goal down to beat Dortmund 3-1 on Saturday before landing their first German Cup final win. It was not the result Jürgen Klopp wanted as he said farewell as Dortmund coach.
