Borussia Dortmund are scrambling to upgrade Ilkay Gundogan's current contract amid interest from Manchester United.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is a big fan of the young midfielder and has made enquiries about his availability.

BILD says United's interest has kicked BVB into action, with plans of new contract talks being brought forward. The Champions League finalists hope to keep hold of Gundogan by offering a significant pay-hike.
