Ilkay Gundogan’s agent reveals transfer latest amid Arsenal interest

The midfielder’s agent explained where his client stands at the moment

The agent of Manchester City star Ilkay Gundogan has confirmed that his client is yet to make a decision on his future, with the German focused on winning a historic treble with Pep Guardiola’s side before he plans his next move.

Victory in Saturday’s FA Cup final, thanks to two goals from Gundogan himself, ensured that Manchester City completed a domestic double as they lifted the trophy at the expense of Manchester United, but they are still eyeing up a historic treble.

Achieved only by Manchester United in 1999, City face Inter Milan in the Champions League final on Saturday night looking to lift their first Champions League trophy, and crown an exceptional season.

Gundogan’s resurgence in the back end of the season has been key to that, with the German coming up with four goals and an assist in his last five outings. Out of contract this summer, he has been linked with moves away from the club on a free transfer amid interest from both Arsenal and Barcelona.

His agent, however, explained to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano that no progress had been made on any potential next club, and that the 32-year-old was instead solely focused on completing his historic season with Manchester City first.

“Nothing has been agreed with City or any other club”, he told Romano.

City have offered the German a new deal to remain at the Etihad, however he is keen to negotiate a longer deal, something that has so far not been offered to him by the Premier League champions.

Pep Guardiola, however, would like to keep him at the club.

“He knows what I think,” Guardiola said after the FA Cup final victory. “Txiki [Begiristain, football director] is working on it. Hopefully he can be successful.”
