Here We Go Man City Travel Captain Guendo to Barcelona 2+1 year contract scheduled
Ilkay Gündogan enters Camp Nou.
Fabricio Romano, who is familiar with the European football transfer market, said on social media on the 22nd (Korea Standard Time), “Guindoan is heading to Barcelona. The final approval for player registration arrived at the club, and the player also turned on a green light. The contract was completed a few minutes ago.
“Guindoan has agreed to a two-year contract that is valid until June 2025. “There is an option to extend it by one year,” he said, explaining the specific conditions. At the same time, Romano added a signature comment “here we go,” which means the signing of the contract, highlighting his trip to Barcelona.
Gündogan grew up in bochum as a rising star and then made his professional debut in Nuremberg. After moving to Dortmund, he dominated the German Bundesliga stage in earnest. There were big and small injuries every season, but he was very active every time he stepped on the ground. Gündogan, who was in charge of Dortmund’s midfield, also made his name known on board the German national team.
The next destination was England. Guendoan entered Etihad Stadium with a transfer fee of 27 million euros (about 38.2 billion won) and signed with Manchester City. It was my first time on the stage in England, but I didn’t need an adaptation period. Guendoan has won numerous trophies at Manchester City and has led his teammates since the end of last season, taking over as captain of Fernandinho.
It finally peaked. Manchester City achieved a “treble” by winning the English Premier League (EPL), the English FA Cup, and the UEFA Champions League (UCL) under Pep Guardiola. The commitment shown by Captain Gündogan is inexplicable.
However, the company that seemed to last forever is about to end. The contract signed between Guendoan and Manchester City will expire soon. The farewell, which had been announced even before the end of the season, is in the process.
It is not that there were no negotiations on renewing the contract. Britain’s “Sky Sports” explained, “We negotiated a new contract with Guindoan and Manchester City, but the contract period (1 year + 12 months extension) was an obstacle.”
Gündogan ended up leaving Manchester City. The next destination is Barcelona. Earlier, Spain’s “Football Espana” said, “Barcelona is eager to recruit Guendoan as soon as possible. Lionel Messi is no longer an option, so he is focusing on Guendoan,” he explained. Spain’s “Sport” also said, “Guendoan has already reached an agreement with Barcelona, not only Manchester City but also Arsenal. A three-year contract was a must for Guendoan, he said.
After entering Camp Nou, Guendoan transfers his experience as a veteran to the midfield, where relatively young players such as Pedro, Gabi, and The Yong are located. An official announcement is expected soon.
Meanwhile, Manchester City are considering recruiting Matteo Kovacic instead of Guendoan. The British ‘Guardian’ said, “Chelsea allowed Manchester City to start a conversation with Kovacic. Kovacic is ready for a new challenge. “Chelsea has to cut back on squads, and the new coach Mauricio Pochettino has begun rebuilding,” he said, predicting Kovacic’s move to Manchester City. 사설놀이터
There has also been news that the deal has already reached an agreement. British public broadcaster “BBC” said, “Man City agreed with Chelsea to recruit Kovacic for a transfer fee of £30 million (about KRW 49.4 billion). The basic amount is 25 million pounds (about 41.2 billion won) and a bonus of 5 million pounds (about 8.2 billion won).” A big change is expected in Manchester City’s midfield next season
