He could be one of the possible close-enough replacements for Carrick and someone who plays multiple positions/roles equally good. Perfect playmaker from the deep, has a great range of passing, very good vision and drive, composed on the ball, linking up with the lads wherever plays on the pitch, talent and footballing intelligence in abundance. Seems like that recovers from the back injury very well too.
Seems like it, but buying him will be a bit of a risk anyway.
I'm always on the opinion that every single one of them is a risk when changing the club and especially the culture he lives in, regardless of injury proneness. That risk is always smaller if the transfer fee is fairly reasonable and/or when a player shows an overall improvement in his recovery and form.
for 15 million, at worst he is going to be quality cover (and i mean proper quality) when healthy is probably on par with Herrera, the only issue is his health, even then its not like he's Owen Hargreaves
Another baller in midfield, on top form there aren't many better him in my opinion, he can control the game and change the course of it in a flash. Brilliant player to watch when fit and on top form, could be what Anderson couldn't be for us if we get him of course.
BVB star Gundogan is transferred to Manchester United
Well on farewell tour: Ilkay Gundogan is facing a change in the Premier League.
BVB Dortmund. Wants to concentrate on the Frankfurt-section, the cup game against Bayern and Gündogans likely move to Manchester United come in between.
Jürgen Klopp is true, at Borussia Dortmund one would be "a bit hammered" when you "put everything on the card Tuesday" would. As part of the farewell tour of the coach the guest next week at the Munich stage a particular value but is now once attached. Even by the Bavarians, the opponent in the Cup semi-finals.
The obvious shares the pain of many supporters of BVB, which would have the man who led them to two titles, one Cup victory and up into the Champions League final, like to continue to see in black and yellow dress. "At least with a bouquet" wanted FCB Klopp remember Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has announced and the explanation for the generous action replenished same: "In all the skirmishes I have always had great respect for the club. Especially in the coach. "
Rummenigge praises Klopp
A "great coach" Rummenigge Klopp has also mentioned. And in these days when the ball rolls down the stretch of the season and has not decided whether the daueranspruchsvollle FC Bayern will actually meet its target, may be assumed that the gesture will help relax for the future, the Klopp relation to Südklub , You never know if you do not want to someday find each other.
In the so-exciting future of the not-always-BVB coach wants his eyes just do not judge. It is this even before the home game in the Bundesliga against Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday (LIVE 15.30 clock, our Ticker) everywhere. How it will go with him, with Klopp next? No new state of things, except the reconciliation activities, initiated by Rummenigge. How is it going with the club Borussia Dortmund on when Thomas Tuchel takes over the bank roll? No statements of Klopp to do so. However, plenty of speculation. Those with the highest compression: Ilkay Gundogan is to change from next season on the island to Manchester United. The fact that the German national team would leave the BVB in the summer, already hinted in. The term of the 24-year-ends in mid 2016. Since the Borussia has stated that they had only in the case of star striker Robert Lewandowski, who had to fulfill his contract prior to joining Bayern, waived a transfer fee, there will not be other exceptions , probably not willing Gundogan extension must be brought to the purchaser so now.
BVB hospital thins out
For Klopp this is no longer an issue. His topic in Gundogan Causa: The midfielder is suffering from a sore throat. He was pulled because of possible contagion "from the ranks circle". The hope that he can run up against Eintracht Frankfurt, but still alive. And even with the prospect of further convalescent use is available. Sebastian Kehl is "surprisingly fast surprisingly well," said the coach. Lukasz Piszczek also. Even Marco Reus could be an option for the encounter with Eintracht already. If the star, who sat against the usual business rules a signature mark of the highest BVB need, but its not quite round the move still on the weekend, this is "It would be nice if it would long for at least Tuesday."
On Tuesday, the Klopp may not think that because not only one, but still lie two major tasks for the Dortmund: "The guys are on track," he said; "They want this season might be just a little, but still miss a punch." On the way to fulfill the first task must be in the league victory against Frankfurt forth, which are based on points in the table in tenth place behind the BVB ( 36). The fingers crossed for all those struggling against relegation, must be concerned by the way. Win Paderborn against Bremen (38), Hanover wins against Hoffenheim (37), wins the Hamburger SV vs Augsburg (42), and perhaps even Mainz Schalke (42), it is in fact much more likely that the BVB can go even stamp.
Here's the previous article about his potential transfer, also translated:
Gundogan before parting - BVB is made smaller
Food. In the great Borussia Dortmund coach goes. Probably also follows one or the other big players. Problems are not small. A comment.
Sometimes the football seems somehow already completely pixelated, as if he had found his home in a virtual world. With Borussia Dortmund but you can feel just a knack harsh reality burglary. Towards the end of the season, in the way of money Champions League source was not found, the Small setting begins.
Small setting, which means for most people: Is not enough money, the car has to go. For the club Borussia it means: The globally sought-after United coach Jürgen Klopp follows Thomas Tuchel, who was constantly sought after somewhere only in Germany and only for lack of alternatives. And a few actors from Black Yellow whose names have developed in recent years also sound, will leave you with wholesale Klopp.
Ilkay Gundogan, for example. Long could be assumed that he would move to FC Barcelona. The Catalans but may due to a Uefa penalty until 2016 back shopping, and Dortmund wants to collect for the player. So the exchange runs in the summer. Likely target: Manchester United. Approximate release: 30 million. Many Euros. That should not be confused with Greater Place, one knows but BVB. Someone like Robert Lewandowski is gone, the problems are there. Ilkay Gundogan as a. , ,
I thought Blind was supposed to be Carrick's long term replacement? Looks like he'll become a versatile squad player if this transfer happens. Must admit that besides during Dortmund's quality champions league run a couple of seasons ago I haven't seen a whole lot of Gundogan. I always had him down as playing a more advanced role than the deep-lying playmaker one he's being lined up for, not necessarily as an attacking midfielder but similar to the position Herrera normally occupies.
Searching that Metro link that Independent.ie saying about as their source, nothing in there! Just something about Memphis, Falcao to Chelsea Fabiano gold medal play acting and some folk on a horse with a pants pulled down southern etc.
