Delighted Manchester United fans react on Twitter to missing out on Gundogan

Ilkay Gundogan warming up for Germany

Some United supporters are over the moon the Borussia Dortmund midfielder won't be moving to Old Trafford just yet...

So Ilkay Gundogan won't be joining Manchester United this summer after all. According to many, the German's move to Old Trafford was a done deal months ago.

In the event, however, Gundogan has signed a new deal with Borussia Dortmund, ensuring he won't be moving to Manchester United just yet at the very least.

Yet some United fans have been delighted by the news on Twitter. Indeed, they feel the 24-year-old is not needed in Manchester and would prefer to concentrate on other targets.

Naturally, there are those that have been disappointed by the news. Especially since it appears the German has very much used the Manchester United reports to his advantage when it comes to extending his contract with Dortmund.

But several on Twitter have expressed their pleasure that they have avoided a seeming mistake by signing Gundogan. It's been a slow transfer window so far at United. This news, though, isn't upsetting everyone.
