Manchester United chiefs are convinced they've won the battle for Borussia Dortmund midfielder Ilkay Gundogan. The Daily Star Sunday says United are sure they have won the £25million battle for Germany's Gundogan.

It is possible that Shinji Kagawa, who joined United from Dortmund, could return to his former club in a swap deal.
