Manchester City’s Ilkay Gundogan is targeted by Barcelona.
The German footballer who plays as a midfielder for current Permier League winner Manchester City is targeted by Spanish giants FC Barcelona.

The midfielder who was on National duty for Germany has returned after a shocking exit of Germany from the Group Stage.
Gundegon was a part of part of German club Borussia Dortmund for 5 years before leaving for Manchester City. The midfielder was bought by the German side for a transfer fee of approximately €4 million on a 4-year long contract. He represented the German side over 150 matches and scored on 15 occasions.
In June 2016, the English side signed a 4-year contract with the midfielder at an estimated fee of £20 million. He was the club’s first signing under former Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola. The player made his debut for the English side in a home game against Borussia Monchengladbach. The match was a UEFA Champions League match which the English Side won 4-0. The midfielder went on to represent the club for 64 games and was on the scoring sheet for 11 times.
On the other hand, Pep Guardiola has already said that Gundegon is an important player to his squad and they wont sell the player.
Pep said, “I have plenty of time on my current contract, two years to go, But it also depends on the club if they want me to stay. Everyone can see and feel I am really happy here.”
The Manchester City Boss also said, “With the way we play, with the people around me, in the city, in the community, I really enjoy it here and really enjoy my life. I’m happy. It was great to win the Premier League title, but there are plenty of things still to achieve. We are committed to this every year at City, not just the players, but the coaching staff, to try to win the biggest trophies. That’s what we will be trying to do next season and the season after.
