Manchester United and Arsenal have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Borussia Dortmund midfielder Ilkay Gundogan, with the Bundesliga giants reportedly having offered a new contract, according to the Express.
The 23-year-old has just over 12 months to run on his current deal, and is said to be a top summer transfer target for both Premier League clubs.
La Liga giants Real Madrid and Barcelona are also reportedly keeping an eye on developments over the German international’s future.
But Dortmund remain desperate to keep hold of one of their prized assets, with chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke admitting he hopes to tie Gundogan down to a new deal before the start of the World Cup.
