Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola is in favor of Ilkay Gundogan staying. City’s bosses do not want to extend his contract, which runs until 2023. They leave it up to the German to look for new options.

Unlikely to remain: After it is clear that Ilkay Gündogan (31) has no future at Manchester City beyond 2023, the German international is aiming for a change in the summer. That writes the British “Daily Mail”. Coach Pep Guardiola is still committed to his midfield star. “Personally, I want Ilkay to be here next season.” At the same time, Guardiola states that he doesn’t know anything about requests for a change.

Several interested parties: Several top clubs are said to be interested in Gündogan. Among other things, FC Barcelona and several German clubs. Arsenal are the favorites should the Gunners qualify for the Champions League on the final day of the Premier League. Gündogan has already worked with coach Mikel Arteta at Manchester City.

Dissatisfaction with the situation: Gündogan demands more operating times. However, the requirement can hardly be met in the Citizens’ star ensemble. City’s bosses therefore allow the 31-year-old to look for new challenges. Gündogan moved from Dortmund to Manchester in 2016 and has been able to celebrate three championships there so far.

Farewell to Liverpool risky – could Salah face the same fate as Messi?
