However Man United hope to convince Gundogan to move to the Premier League with the guarantee of regular first team action something that could be tougher to secure at Real Madrid given the presence of the likes of Luka Modric, Xabi Alonso, Sami Khedira and Asier Illaramendi in Carlo Ancelotti’s midfield pecking order.

Moyes has seen Tom Cleverley, Marouane Fellaini and Anderson struggle for form and Michael Carrick and Darren Fletcher struggle with injuries and illness and Gundogan could well be an ideal addition to his Man United squad.
