Mercato; after Messi failure, Barça confident of Gündogan transfer


While Manchester City tries to extend Ilkay Gündogan, the German would have agreed with Barça. The Catalans, confident about this transfer, would have certified his registration in the A team next season.

And if the Champions League final, Saturday against Inter, was neither more nor less than Ilkay Gündogan’s last match with Manchester City? The German midfielder, at the end of his contract with the Sky Blues, is the subject of several proposals, including that of FC Barcelona, ​​the most insistent, according to Sport. Barça and Gündogan have already agreed on a three-year contract, especially since Xavi considers him to be the number one priority in this position following the departure of Sergio Busquets.

Barça, an extension to City, or Saudi Arabia for Gündogan?

Sport adds that Barça wanted to reassure the player’s clan about the feasibility of the transaction, since given the salary cap, the Catalan club must restrict the number of players registered in the A team. However, despite offers from Saudi Arabia and Manchester City’s desire to extend its captain – who has passed the 300-game threshold since his arrival in 2016 – FC Barcelona remains confident about the outcome of this negotiation.

Just days after failing to bring Lionel Messi back, eventually leaving for Inter Miami, Gündogan’s transfer is crucial for Barça. Once the 32-year-old is enlisted, the club could then focus on the departure of several important players who have a large salary, while refining the transfer window in the direction of arrivals.
