City sign Gundogan on 4-year deal

Citizens complete signing of German midfielder

Manchester City have signed Borussia Dortmund midfielder Ilkay Gundogan.

The 25-year-old, who will miss Euro 2016 for Germany and possibly even the start of next season after suffering from a dislocated kneecap last month, becomes new manager Pep Guardiola’s first signing at Man City.

“The opportunity to work with a coach like Pep Guardiola is something I am really looking forward to and I am flattered to be the first signing the club has made this summer,” said Gundogan

“I will give everything to help us win titles both in England and the Champions League. These are exciting times.

“I have my best years ahead of me and I think we can achieve great things together.”

The midfielder joined Dortmund from Nuremberg in 2011 and helped them reach the 2013 Champions League final, before signing a new contract in 2015 that still had a year to run.
