Gundogan is close to transferring to Barcelona this summer. Ilkay Gundogan has been strongly linked with a move to Barcelona in recent months, and now it seems that a deal is getting closer to completion.
Gundogan’s contract with Manchester City expires at the end of the season, and considering this, Barcelona will be able to sign him for free in the summer.
Given their financial difficulties, this is an attractive option for Barcelona.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Gundogan is increasingly drawn to the idea of joining Barcelona, and any doubts he had about his ability to adapt to the club have diminished.
Furthermore, Gundogan is happier with the contract offer from Barcelona, which is believed to be a long-term agreement compared to the year-to-year contract from City.
Xavi Hernandez wants to strengthen his midfield options, especially after Sergio Busquets has confirmed that he will be leaving Barcelona this summer.
Gundogan can play in all midfield positions and will be valuable for the upcoming season and beyond.
