Gundogan on his City future

The 28-year-old now has just over a year remaining on his current Man City deal.

Gundogan’s future in Manchester has been somewhat up in the air over the past few months.

The midfielder has even been linked with a return to his former club, Dortmund.

However, in a recent interview, Gundogan has provided a fresh update on his future, in which he claims to know nothing about any interest from Dortmund.

Gundogan also states that there will be talks between he and City over the summer, with the Manchester Evening News claiming that Man City’s confidence has grown that the German will sign a new deal, despite interest from Dortmund.

When speaking about his future and Dortmund’s rumoured interest, Gundogan stated:

“I would know about that [interest from Dortmund], I know nothing, I have not spoken to anyone.

“There will be talks in the summer and then we’ll see.

“I’m not dissatisfied with Manchester City and that’s why I would not say that I really want to leave because the club wants to extend my contract.” As quoted by the Manchester Evening News.
