At the end of the contract at Manchester City, Ilkay Gundogan (32 years, 28 games and 4 goals in the Premier League this season) seems to be heading towards and free start this summer. The midfielder is strongly advertised at FC Barcelona. But this Monday, the Catalan daily Sport announces a possible rebound.
The German, flourishing among the Citizens, would no longer be so certain of wanting to leave. Especially since Barça’s difficulties with the financial fair play of La Liga make him doubt. Even if they offer him a salary higher than the 9 M€ annual offered by Man City, the Blaugrana are not yet able to validate his contract.
This new trend could make Mancunian manager Pep Guardiola, a great admirer of his captain, happy.
