With the success of a move for Cesc Fabregas uncertain, Manchester United are said to be looking to Germany in search of a midfielder.

United are said to be ready to make a Cesc their most expensive player ever with talk of a €40m bid for the former Arsenal star, but Barcelona have officially taken the stance that the player is not for sale with a number of people involved with the club publicly declaring that United’s attempt will be fruitless.

So if Barcelona don’t bite and decide to keep hold of the La Masia graduate, The Metro claim United will turn their attention to Borussia Dortmund’s Ilkay Gundogan.

Gundogan was linked with United back when he was still at Nuremberg in 2010 but ended up joining Jurgen Klopp’s side, but it appears Moyes is ready to try their hand with the Germans, confident that a £20m bid will be enough to secure the German international.

Former Dortmund star Shinji Kagawa apparently gave Gundogan a glowing report, reinforcing Moyes interest but you have to question the authenticity of this report, how likely is it that Dortmund will sell Gundogan, who has 2 years left on his deal, after losing Goetze to Bayern this summer?
