United target Guendogan ready to do U-turn and stay where he is

Borussia Dortmund playmaker Ilkay Guendogan, who was set to leave the German club this summer, could stay on under new coach Thomas Tuchel, his agent said today.

Germany international Guendogan, a Manchester United target, had said in April he would not be renewing his contract that runs out in 2016.

"This is clearly an option again," his agent and uncle Ilhan Guendogan said about a potential U-turn by the player to stay at Dortmund or even signing a contract extension. "There are several things in favour of Ilkay finding back to his old level and doing that in a familiar, comfortable environment."

The talented 24-year-old had been out of action for 14 months before returning from a back injury in December last year.
