Manchester United face stiff competition from Barcelona for Borussia Dortmund midfielder Ilkay Gundogan.

The Daily Express says reports in Spain suggest that Dr Richard Pruna was not present when Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes underwent tests on a knee injury that will end his season because he was in Germany meeting with Gundogan.

Gundogan has not played for Dortmund since August after coming down with a mysterious back injury, but is widely expected to leave Germany in the summer.
