Ilkay Gundogan is one of the midfielders that Barça wants for its new sports project. The German international is at a spectacular level and Manchester City, who previously had doubts, is trying to renew him anyway. The English club has passed him a new proposal to sign him for one season with the option of a second that would be in the hands of the footballer. The economic proposal would be superior to that of Barça, a club that has offered him three guaranteed years.
Negotiations between Barça and Gundogan are practically closed and City could be late. In the Blaugrana club there is optimism to be able to count on the footballer since Gundogan prioritizes residing in Spain with his family and ending his cycle in the Premier. Despite everything, nothing is signed and Gundogan is receiving pressure to stay in Manchester for at least one more year.
The footballer will announce his future after the Champions League final this Saturday. Most likely, he will only talk about his continuity or not at City and he will leave his new destination for later, which would almost certainly be Barça. Gundogan would have already rejected the option to sign for Arteta’s Arsenal although he is still listening to City. At Barça they have had to guarantee him a third fixed year to have options to sign him.
