Man U target unlikely to stay at Nurnberg
Wednesday 10 November 2010
Nurnberg have confirmed that midfield starlet Ilkay Gundogan is unlikely to be at the club next season.
The Germany Under-21 international is rumoured to be attracting the interest of Manchester United and, with the youngster's contract ending in the summer of 2012, it appears Dieter Hecking's Bundesliga outfit will cash in on their prize asset.
General manager Martin Bader said: It's a scenario that Klaus Allofs (Werder Bremen general manager) recently experienced with Mesut Ozil.
"He kept trying to keep hold of him but, eventually, at some point, things were way beyond Bremen's financial limits.
"We are also subject to economic considerations. It's a fact that clubs from inside and outside the Bundesliga have learned about the exceptional qualities of Ilkay Gundogan."
