Ilkay Gundogan ‘to reject Barcelona and open talks with Man City’

Ilkay Gundogan is set to reject advances from Barcelona in January and commit his future to Manchester City.

The midfielder has two years remaining on his £90,000-a-week deal at the Etihad Stadium and appears happy to extend his stay under Pep Guardiola.

The 27-year-old is also attracting interest from AC Milan and clubs in the Bundesliga.

But, according to The Sun, he is keen to commit his long-term future and sign improved terms.

They claim the German international ‘loves’ playing under Guardiola and is comfortable in Manchester.

Gundogan was among the first of Guardiola’s new signings when he took over the managerial hotseat at City in 2016.

Though his first season was disrupted by the recurrence of a serious knee injury, he played a key role in their record-breaking Premier League success last year.

He helped them to a league and Carabao Cup double in 2018, making 48 appearances across the board and scoring six times. 

Gundogan will return to City after the international break, where he was whistled by a section of the home crowd in Germany’s draw with France last week.

He and Mesut Ozil, both Germany internationals of Turkish origin, were heavily criticised for meeting president Recep Erdogan for a photo-opportunity in June shortly before the World Cup.

The Germans went on to exit the competition at the group stage, their earliest departure in 80 years.
