The Express goes onto say that United had a £21.5 million bid accepted by Dortmund earlier this month.

“We will have players leaving our club this summer,” Zorc was quoted as saying by the Express.

“There will be some action in the turn of next week.”

Manchester United are currently the bookmakers favourite for Gündoğan if he does decide to leave the German giants.

Gündoğan was closely linked with Barcelona and Bayern Munich but both clubs are reported to have cooled interest in the Germany international.

The 24-year-old still has another year left on his contract but Dortmund want to secure a new contract if Gündoğan does decide to stay next season in order to avoid another Robert Lewandowski situation.
