Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has said he will sit down for talks with the club and decide whether he should stay at the Etihad.
The German international is weighing up whether he wants a new challenge and, while he did say he was happy to continue playing for the Citizens, he did also admit he isn’t entirely happy with his game time:
“Of course, I would have liked to play a little longer in one or two important games over the last few months. That’s not a secret. I am a player who always wants to play. I also need that for my rhythm, otherwise, I often find it difficult.”
Journalist Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Arsenal are keeping tabs on Gundogan’s situation and, with the 31-year-old having a year left on his current deal, City may have to decide whether to sell the player if he doesn’t put pen to paper on an extension.
It appears that it will be a summer of change at the Premier League champions. In addition to Gundogan, there are three other high-profile players (Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez) who are also closing in on the final twelve months of their contracts.
