United after Dortmund’s Gundogan


Manchester United continue to be linked with all the world-class midfielders in world soccer. The latest name to be linked with a move to Old Trafford is Borussia Dortmund star Ilkay Gundogan. One newspaper says that the Red Devils will have to pay £24 million to prise the player away from Germany. David Moyes is desperate for midfield reinforcements and this rumor might not be too far wide of the mark.

Elsewhere, Arsenal full-back is a target for Turkish giants Galatasaray and AC Milan eye up a move for Chelsea wantaway midfielder Michael Essien.

Do the Duck!

Someone’s gotta tell the Germans to stop dancing in public. Last month, it was Michael Ballack making a fool out of himself. This time, it’s Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker.

 Mertesacker and teammate Bacary Sagna were asked to entertain fans in Vietnam at an Arsenal fan party. One player came out unscathed (Sagna), while the other will struggle to shake off these images for a while.

Mertesacker rose onto the stage and began performing a bizarre duck-style dance, which we can only hope he was asked to perform! At least Per showed he knows how to have a good time.
