Gundogan’s time at Man City
Ilkay Gundogan joined Manchester City in the summer of 2016.
City signed Gundogan from German outfit Borussia Dortmund for a fee believed to be around £24m.
The German has gone on to feature 115 times for the Sky Blues, scoring 17 and assisting 17.
Gundogan has also won a plethora of trophies since his move to England, including two Premier League titles, one FA Cup, two League Cups, and two Community Shields.
The most recent of these was the 2019 Community Shield, which City beat Liverpool to via penalties.
Gundogan’s new deal
With three years gone, Gundogan had just one year left on his current Man City deal.
Should he have not signed a new contract, City could have lost the midfielder for free next summer, with foreign clubs able to sign him to a pre-contract agreement in January 2020.
However, on Friday morning, Man City have announced that Gundogan has signed a new deal, keeping him with the Manchester club until at least 2023.

On signing a new deal, Gundogan stated:
“I am very happy to have signed the new contract.
“I have hugely enjoyed the last three years here at City and everyone at the Club has helped make me feel at home from my very first day.
“It’s a privilege to be a part of this team, playing the style of football we do and winning trophies. It’s very difficult to do that and I’m delighted to be a part of it.
“I’m really excited about what we can go on to achieve in the next few seasons.” As quoted by Man City’s official website.
