Speculation hats on, people. Fun news from Germany:

Or, as Mr G. Translate puts it:

Borussia Dortmund midfielder and @ Guendogan8 will not cooperate on the June 30, 2016 also decided not to renew his contract valid up to that point

Or, as somebody else puts it:

The answer to that last question being, possibly, "Manchester United"?

Last week's rumours of a done deal seem to have been a touch premature, but all the papers seem to agree that United are interested, and this presumably increases the pressure on Dortmund to sell. Over to you, Mr Woodward.
