Ilkay Gundogan's father has hinted that his son would be interested in a move to Manchester United by revealing that 'everything is open' with regards to his son's future.
The German international, who scored his side's only goal in their Champions League final defeat against Bayern Munich last year, has played just once this season as he continues to battle a back injury.
However that hasn't stopped speculation over his future, with Manchester United said to be keen on securing his services.
The Red Devils pursued various midfield options last summer before snapping up Marouane Fellaini from Everton for £27.5 million.
However they could well go back in for the 23-year-old in the summer as manager David Moyes looks to spend the reported £200 million he will have at his disposal to overhaul his squad.
Gundogan's father offered Manchester United a boost when he told Kicker magazine that at the moment his son's fitness was at the top of the agenda, and only when he was fit would he talk about his future.
However he added that 'everything is open'.
Manchester United have struggled in the post Sir Alex Ferguson era, and currently sit in 7th in the Premier League.
They are unlikely to make it to the Champions League for the first time in the Premier League era.
