Man City re-signing? Gundogan’s agent says “nothing has been agreed with any club”
Manchester City and Ilkay Gundogan have reportedly reached an agreement on a new contract, but his agent says nothing has been agreed.
City are just one step away from the ‘treble’. In the league, they pulled off a thrilling come-from-behind victory over Arsenal, and in the FA Cup final, they lifted the trophy with a 2-1 win over Manchester United. Now, if they win the Champions League final against Inter Milan, they will become the second English club to win the “treble” after Manchester United’s 1998-99 treble.
The victory over United was crucial to City’s quest for the treble, and Guendouane was at the center of it. Gundogan joined City from Dortmund in the summer of 2016 and was Pep Guardiola’s first signing for the club. He struggled with injuries and acclimatization early on, but quickly established himself as a key midfielder.
Guendouane has been a consistent player since the 2017-18 season. He played around 30 EPL games each season, anchoring City’s midfield. City won the league title in four of the last five seasons, from 2017-18 to last season, thanks in large part to Guendouan.
This season was no different. Guendouane started all 31 league games and helped City pull off a thrilling upset over Arsenal at the end of the season. It didn’t end there. Starting in the FA Cup final against Manchester United, Gundogan scored a multi-goal performance and was a key contributor to the win.
With the Champions League final still to come, City are keen to re-sign Guendouane. Transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano wrote on social media on Friday, “City’s offer to extend his contract is still valid. It is until the summer of 2024, with an option for a one-year extension. It was already proposed two weeks ago. We are waiting for Guindoan’s final decision.”
However, nothing has been agreed yet.
Guendouan’s agent told Romano exclusively: “Nothing has been agreed with City. Also, nothing has been agreed with any other club, the recent news is not true. Guendouane is focused on the Champions League final 안전놀이터.”
