Ilkay Gundogan waiting to gauge Barcelona’s interest before deciding Manchester City future

Ilkay Gundogan-Manchester City

Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has been linked with a move to Barcelona recently.

According to reports, the Spanish club have been monitoring his situation in recent months. Their failure to land Georginio Wijnaldum on a free transfer from Liverpool could force them to move for the German international.

Gundogan has been in exceptional form for Manchester City this past season, and the 30-year-old could prove to be a quality addition to Ronald Koeman’s midfield.

Apparently, the midfielder is currently waiting to see if Barcelona follow up on their interest with a concrete offer before deciding on his future at Manchester City.

The German international has nothing left to prove in England, and he might be tempted to move to Spain in the future.

It will be interesting to see if Manchester City can convince the 30-year-old midfielder to continue at Etihad beyond this summer.

Gundogan is one of the best central midfielders in the Premier League right now, and losing him would be a damaging blow for Manchester City.

The German international helped Manchester City win the Premier League this past season. He scored 17 goals and picked up 5 assists in all competitions. 

Gundogan is currently focused on the European Championships with Germany, and he’s prepared to keep his options open while on international duty.

Meanwhile, Manchester City have been linked with a move for the Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish in recent weeks. It will be interesting to see if the England international’s arrival can convince Gundogan to move this summer.
