Manchester City player Ilkay Gundogan attract interest from Spanish and German clubs

Ilkay Gundogan attract interest from both Spain and Germany. This is the latest development in the Ilkay Gundogan situation, according to the Mirror. The Manchester City star was one of Pep Guardiola’s first signings in the summer of 2016.

In a lengthy update on the situation at the Etihad Stadium, Simon Mullock claims that Ilkay Gundogan’s current employers are “reluctant” to grant him the two-year extension he requests.

Pep Guardiola on the future of his current club captain said “I know my opinion about Ilkay (Gundogan). Ilkay, what he has done against Aston Villa last season, he can do whatever he wants.”

“He has paradise already. He knows exactly my opinion about him, the club knows it, but it’s a question of the club and him, and his agent. Whatever is going to happen, I’m pretty sure it’s going to be good for him.”

“Really we want (him), for how he behaves, is behaving, all his life, all his period here in Manchester. But what’s going to happen, I’m sorry, these kind of things belong to the club and the player.”
