It’s no secret that FC Barcelona are likely to continue to be very active in the next transfer window. While new reinforcements are set to land this winter, the La Liga leader is already eyeing his future summer transfer market. And a Manchester City star is still in the sights!
Barça still follow Gündogan!
In fact, Florian Plettenberg reveals that Ilkay Gündogan still hasn’t made a final decision on his future with the Citizens. His contract, which expires in 2023, would have linked his future to Pep Guardiola, who will meet his managers in Abu Dhabi. In no rush to extend, the Germany international would always remain a primary target in Xavi’s mind, keen to strengthen his midfield. Case to follow.
News #gundogan: In relation to a new contract at #MCFC he is not in a hurry. Expires in 2023. Important for him is Guardiola’s future decision. Loose talks about a new 2 or 3-yc. No decision before spring 2023. Barcelona is very interested in Ilkay. @Sky_Marc @SkySportDE 🇩🇪 pic.twitter.com/xfHv8YosrB

While a Manchester City star would be uncertain about his future, FC Barcelona would be ready to take advantage. While Ilkay Gündogan would have linked his future to that of Pep Guardiola, Xavi would like to regain the German international.
