Manchester United target Ilkay Gundogan has been warned by his club Borussia Dortmund that he need to provide some clarity over his future.

The Old Trafford club have been credited with an interest in the Germany international as a possible solution to their midfield creativity problems and now BVB are looking for him to make some kind of decision.

Gundogan is a technically excellent midfield playmaker and would add an extra touch f possession control to the Manchester United midfield, as well as greater guie going forward.

His current contract runs until 2015 but the recent agreement between Bayern Munich and Robert Lewandowski to sign the Polish striker on a free transfer in the summer has got the Dortmund officials worrying about a repeat with another of their leading stars.

According to the Mirror report, sporting director Michael Zorc told German media that the club were "not fond of ultimatums" but "our top priority is to find out if there is a willingness to prolong the contract" when pressed over Gundogan's future.

Pressure on David Moyes to spend in January has risen since Manchester United fell to their fourth defeat in six matches at Old Trafford when being knocked out of the FA Cup third round by Swansea City.

Midfield is widely thought of as the area that needs to ber addressed soonest, as most of the creative players in the Red Devils' squad have failed to deliver so far this season.
