Borussia Dortmund deny Gundogan rumours

Borussia Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke has moved to quash speculation that Ilkay Gundogan, a target for Manchester United, has requested a transfer to Real Madrid.

Gundogan's future has been the subject of much conjecture over the past few months as Dortmund attempt to convince the midfielder to renew his contract and recent reports claim Real Madrid is his most likely destination.

However, Watzke has dismissed suggestions that Gundogan is heading for a transfer the Santiago Bernabeu and claims the player has not expressed a desire to leave Signal Iduna Park.

"If we believe all those stories from Spain in terms of which player is to leave our club, we would have trouble picking a proper team," he told BILD.

"Neither Ilkay nor his father have yet told us anything about leaving."

Gundogan is out of contract in 2015 and the uncertainty surrounding his future in Dortmund has prompted links to a number of prominent clubs in Europe.

Manchester United are among those to have been credited with interest in the Germany international as David Moyes strives to bring a midfielder of some repute to Old Trafford.

The Premier League champions would reportedly have to part with £25 million if they hope to secure the signature of the 23-year-old.
