Man Utd fans react as Ilkay Gundogan officially refuses new contract

Borussia Dortmund midfielder Ilkay Gundogan, who has been heavily linked with a move to the couple of Premier League clubs such as Manchester United and Arsenal, has officially refused the opportunity to extend his contract at the Westfalenstadion.

The German international, whose current deal valid until next summer and the Bundesliga club have failed to tie him down for the future as confirmed through their Twitter account.

The Tweet translates as “Borussia Dortmund and midfielder Gundogan will not cooperate together beyond June 30, 2016.”
