Tottenham & Real Madrid target 'dreams' of playing in England or Spain

Next Story

Tottenham Hotspur and Real Madrid target Ilkay Gundogan has admitted he would be interested in a move to England and Spain in the future, but has no immediate plans to leave Bourssia Dortmund, reports Sky Sports.

The 22-year-old midfielder has been heavily linked with a move away from the Bundesliga this summer, with talkSPORT suggesting the German international could be on his way to La Liga or the Premier League.

Spurs boss Andre Villas Boas has been credited with an interest in bringing Gundogan to White Hart Lane, after he turned in a series of impressive performances for Jurgen Klopp's side this season, playing an instrumental part in Dortmund's progress to the Champions League semi-finals.

However, Tottenahm will face serious competition for the player's signature, as Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho continues to monitor his development in Germany, with a view to luring him to the Santiago Bernabeu.

Gundogan admits it is flattering to be linked with such illustrious clubs, but insists he is happy at the Westfalenstadion and is not planning on moving in the foreseeable future.

"It is not reprehensible to answer such questions (of a future career in England or Spain) with 'yes'," he told Sport Bild. "Everyone has a childhood dream on what he would like to achieve one day, and my dream always was to play in England or Spain.

"[But] I am 100 per cent sure that I will still be with Dortmund next season. Rumours do not really affect me. I still have two more years on my contract with Dortmund and I know what I have at this incredible club.

"It is very likely that I will sign a new contract, although it obviously depends on how talks go."
