Report: Midfielder ‘set to leave’ Man City, 31 y/o ‘free to depart’ despite 14 G+A in 42 games


Mike Keegan of the Daily Mail says Ilkay Gundogan is ‘set to leave’ Manchester City this summer after being deemed surplus to requirements by the club hierarchy.

The 31-year-old has been a regular under Pep Guardiola scoring eight goals with six assists in 42 games across the board this season, but he’ll be ‘free to depart’ at the end of the campaign.

Gundogan has 12 months remaining on his deal at the Etihad Stadium but isn’t likely to be handed an extension beyond 2023, so City could cash in early this summer rather than losing him for nothing next year.

The German international joined the Sky Blues from Borussia Dortmund in 2016 and has gone on to make 252 appearances in all competitions, scoring 47 goals with 33 assists.

Gundogan has won three Premier League titles, four League Cups and one FA Cup at City. He’s been a fantastic servant and will be missed, but is it necessary that he’s sold this summer? Gundogan is still an important player and will be hard to replace, so why not let him run his deal down?

    Not the way to treat the man who saved City’s season against Villa.
    Should be offered an extension to his contract. A great player
