Etihad Star Could Travel Freely In The Middle Of Arsenal Links

Manchester City

Manchester City will allow Gundogan transfer. The Premier League champions not wanted to provide the midfielder a two-year deal despite Arsenal interest.

The German international’s current £140,000-a-week contract is set to expire at the end of this season. There is amid rising transfer interest, but the Manchester giants are reportedly not convinced to offer him a new term that is longer than two years.

According to the report, Gundogan is a target for clubs in Germany and Spain. Last year, Fabrizio Romano claimed that Arsenal want to sign the 32-year-old. Mikel Arteta is reportedly considering making another City signing to go with Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko.

Although a transfer to north London now looks improbable. City failing to offer Gundogan a new term that would prolong his deal by two years might be a major oversight on the part of Pep Guardiola’s team. The midfielder is one of the most crucial players at the club.

In fact, Gundogan has played a significant role in helping City win the Premier League title. Yet the giants of the Etihad Stadium may be shooting themselves in the foot by refusing to renew the midfielder’s contract by two years with the Manchester team.

Furthermore, if City makes the unprecedented decision to allow their club captain to depart for free. Gundogan won’t be short of suitors in the summer with interest from Germany, Spain, and Arsenal.

In the Guardiola era of the club, Gundogan has been one of City’s top players. While it makes sense that the Manchester club would be reluctant to offer a 32-year-old a two-year contract extension. The midfielder is simply too talented to leave for nothing.

Given that Gundogan’s opponents are also interested in him, City will be able to maintain their team strong while also denying Arsenal the chance to get the midfielder for nothing, a move that Arteta may actually make considering how brilliant the Germany international still is.
