According to his advisor, the future of national soccer player Ilkay Gündogan is still open.
“There is still no agreement with any club. It has not yet been decided where he will play in the next few years,” Gündogan’s adviser Ilhan Gündogan told the Spanish newspaper “AS”. The 32-year-old midfielder can leave Manchester City for free in the summer after seven years.
The Spanish newspaper “Sport” had previously reported that Gündogan’s move to FC Barcelona had practically been decided. As a result, Gündogan’s advisor is said to have met the club managers again.
The City captain will sign a two-year contract with the Catalans with an option for another season. There has been speculation for months about Barcelona’s interest in Gündogan, and there is said to have been a meeting between the two sides in February.
Adviser Ilhan Gündogan was “surprised by the reports”. “Ilkay has three more titles to win this season as Manchester City captain. That’s the only thing he’s focused on at the moment,” he said.
After the 3-0 win in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals against FC Bayern, the Premier League club still has a good chance of a premier class triumph. In the league, the team of star coach Pep Guardiola is in second place, in the FA Cup the opponent is Sheffield United in the semi-finals.
