The 23 year old is currently sidelined with a back injury but is a player David Moyes wants to land to help freshen up his midfield and is ready to trigger the 23 year old’s release clause.

Gundogan is contracted to his current Bundesliga side until 2015 and has been linked with interest from a number of Europe’s ‘Elite’ with Barcelona apparently seeing the box to box performer as a potential long term replacement for Nou Camp legend Xavi.

David Moyes brought in Marouane Fellaini last summer but the Belgian failed to impress before being sidelined with injury and the Old Trafford side could well benefit from further additions to boost a problem area in the Man United squad.

Anderson has been loaned out to Fiorentina and Tom Cleverley hasn’t made an impact whilst Darren Fletcher is still feeling his way back into the first team set-up after a lengthy spell out with illness.

Gundogan played a pivotal role in Borussia Dortmund’s run to the Champions League final last season and could be the latest star turn to leave the Westfalenstadion with Jurgen Klopp seeing Robert Lewandowski agree a deal to follow Mario Gotze to domestic rivals Bayern Munich earlier this month.
