Despite Gundogan being one of the most reliable players under Pep Guardiola’s management, he may leave Manchester City for free in the summer
Ilkay Gundogan’s agent has stated that the midfielder’s future is uncertain. Despite rumors that he wants to join Barcelona once his contract with Manchester City expires.
Gundogan signed a four-year deal in 2019. And with just three months left until it runs out, he has not yet committed to a new agreement.
Gundogan is currently focused on City and the birth of his son
The German midfielder has played in 24 out of 27 Premier League matches for Manchester City this season. However, there have been reports claiming that he intends to join Barcelona once his contract with City expires.
Nevertheless, Gundogan’s agent and uncle, Ilhan Gundogan, says that his future remains uncertain and that nothing has been finalized yet.
Though there are rumors that Barcelona is willing to give him a two-year contract, there is no confirmation regarding his transfer.
“There’s definitely no agreement yet with any club,” he told The Guardian. “The focus of Ilkay in recent weeks was only on Manchester City and the birth of his son.
“Now he is in the final and crucial phase of the season and is completely focused on that. Where Ilkay plays next season is still open.”
Gundogan joined Manchester City from Borussia Dortmund in 2016 and has since won four Premier League titles with the team.
He played a pivotal role in City’s latest triumph. He scored two goals in a comeback win against Aston Villa on the final day of the previous season under the guidance of Pep Guardiola.
Hansi Flick decided not to include the 32-year-old in the German national team for the recent international break due to the player’s recent parenthood.
