Ilkay Gundogan, a midfielder for Manchester City, has been linked to a summer transfer to Barcelona, a powerhouse in La Liga
Due to their well-known financial difficulties, the Spanish club is reportedly searching the market for players whose contracts are about to expire.
The 32-year-contract old’s with City expires at the end of June, and he is free to negotiate a pre-contract deal with international teams.
The international player from Germany moved to City in 2016 from Borussia Dortmund and has been crucial to the team’s recent success. Although he is older, Gundogan’s playing style would be perfect for Barcelona, so it wouldn’t be shocking to see them step up their efforts to recruit him.
When the moment is right, City is not opposed to moving players on, and it may decide to consider younger alternatives to Gundogan. Jude Bellingham, a standout for Borussia Dortmund, has been mentioned as a potential addition, but Liverpool are apparently leading the chase for his talents.
Another choice is Declan Rice, however it’s questionable whether City will agree to West Ham United’s extravagant demands. Matheus Nunes, a midfielder for Wolverhampton Wanderers, might be a more practical goal for City. The international player from Portugal moved to the Midlands outfit from Sporting Lisbon last summer, and he has given the team some standout displays.
