FC Barcelona Gundogan Transfer Update
Recent transfer reports suggested that Gundogan had already agreed to a new deal with City, casting doubt on the chances of FC Barcelona securing his services. However, renowned journalist Fabrizio Romano has now provided an exclusive update. Quoting Gundogan’s agent Ilhan Gundogan, who states that no agreement exists with either Barcelona or City.
According to the agent, Gundogan’s focus is solely on the upcoming Champions League final against Inter. Prioritizing the important fixture over any decisions regarding his future. As the 32-year-old’s contract is set to expire this summer, City may be hesitant to offer him a long-term deal due to his age.

The German midfielder’s performances throughout the season have showcased his exceptional skill and versatility. Making him an attractive target for several top clubs. Barcelona’s pursuit of Gundogan aligns with their ambition to strengthen the squad and compete at the highest level in European competitions.
Fans eagerly await further developments in this transfer saga. Both Barcelona and Gundogan himself are expected to make decisions about their future following the conclusion of the Champions League final.
