According to reports from Football Espana, the midfielder Ilkay Gundogan, Barcelona might not be able to sign him.
The German international is said to be in the process of signing a new contract with Manchester City that will keep him there until 2025, according to the report. The former Borussia Dortmund midfielder is as of now secured at the Etihad till the late spring of 2023 and has been broadly connected with a move away for free.
Barcelona, which is looking for cheap players to add to their roster, was interested in Gundogan’s free transfer availability. Pep Guardiola, manager of Manchester City, is said to be desperate to keep his captain, and talks about an extension are expected to start in 2023.
According to transfer expert Nicolo Schira, the Cityzens are confident that they will keep Gundogan until 2025. The Barcelona target is seen by Guardiola as an important player who could be crucial for them as they try to win their first UEFA Champions League title.
Barcelona has been linked to a number of well-known midfielders who may be available for free or at a reduced price. Due to the fact that Sergio Busquets’ contract runs out this summer, the Blaugrana appear destined to part ways with him. It has been speculated that the World Cup-winning midfielder will join MLS club Inter Miami on a free transfer.
Meanwhile, Gundogan has become increasingly successful at the Etihad since joining Borussia Dortmund in 2016. His value has risen in recent years, and he was a key factor in the Citizen’s success in the Premier League this past season.
