Ilkay Gundogan 'not joining Real Madrid'

The agent of Borussia Dortmund midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has rejected claims that the Germany international has signed a pre-contract at Real Madrid.

Ilkay Gundogan gave Borussia Dortmund hope by sending Manuel Neuer the wrong way from the penalty spot
Ilkay Gundogan joined Borussia Dortmund in 2011.

Gundogan’s current Dortmund deal runs until 2015, but the 23-year-old has constantly been linked with a switch to both the Premier League and La Liga over the past few months.

The Bundesliga side, though, are eager to secure the future of Gundogan, who has only played two matches this season and has been ruled out with a back injury since August.

Both Marca and El Confidencial reported on Friday that Madrid have agreed an option to sign the former Nurnberg man for 30 million euros, as a back-up plan should Xabi Alonso decide to leave Los Blancos at the end of the current campaign.

However, Irfan Gundogan, the midfielder’s father and agent, told kicker: “There is no agreement between us and Real Madrid, like we’ve said in the past.

“We have only put the [Dortmund] contract negotiations on ice to not stress Ilkay more during his injury-related absence. Of course, it is still possible that the contract in Dortmund will be prolonged."

Gundogan joined Dortmund from Nurnberg for five-and-a-half million euros in 2011.
