Borussia Dortmund chief Michael Zorc is pushing Ilkay Gundogan for an answer over new contract talks. Gundogan has fielded interest this month from Manchester United and Real Madrid while a new deal has been tabled by BVB.

Zorc warned: "Of course we will eventually need to plan ahead, because he is a key player for us.

"We cannot wait until the end of the season.

"(But) It does not help us to set any ultimatum."
