Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has finally broken his silence and opened up about his uncertain future. “To be honest, I haven’t made any decisions yet. It’s a complicated process and I’m still in the midst of figuring out what’s best for me,” he vaguely stated. However, when pressed about the possibility of joining Barcelona, he intriguingly described the city as “beautiful,” leaving fans and pundits alike bewildered and curious about his intentions.
During a recent press conference ahead of Germany’s friendly against Colombia, Gundogan shed some light on his contract situation with Manchester City. With his current deal set to expire at the end of June, he confirmed that he will be exploring other options.
