The 20-year-old has impressed for Nurnberg in the Bundesliga this season and has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United
“I admit it is not that easy to play down seeing yourself linked to Manchester United in newspapers, but I feel I am doing OK with that,” he told Sportinformationsdienst.
“I am focused on doing well in my games for Nurnberg and do not give that much away on which club is actually looking at me.
“Playing at Nurnberg is a good thing for me to develop further as a player.
“But of course, playing for Manchester United would be a great thing to do one day.”
Gundogan’s contract at Nurnberg is set to expire in the summer of 2012.
