PSG on pole for Gundogan


PSG could get the better of Barca in Ilkay Gundogan’s case. The Parisian club would be able to align a bigger contract than the Catalan formation to secure the services of the Manchester City player.

According to information obtained by Picture, Barça and PSG are in the fight for the signature of Ilkay Gundogan. In Catalonia, Xavi would make the German international his favorite to succeed Sergio Busquets, whose departure seemed understood until then (some sources claim the opposite). The Spanish player is indeed very criticized for his performances with Barça. Much less on those with Roja.

PSG are therefore also interested in the Manchester City midfielder. Luis Campos apparently wants to take the opportunity presented by his contract situation. The Portuguese leader has the reputation of being able to do good business during the transfer window. Ilkay Gundogan is one of the great opportunities for next summer. The player will indeed be allowed to negotiate with clubs from January, given that his contract will end in June 2023.

PSG could line up more than Barça

The German media nevertheless already claims that the battle between Barça and PSG could turn in favor of the French. The Parisian club would be willing to line up a bigger salary than its Blaugrana counterpart. The Qataris could take advantage of the case to play a trick on their best enemies. The two formations have been waging a merciless war since the transfer of Neymar, or even before.

As for Manchester City, Ilkay Gundogan has taken part in 20 games in all competitions this season. The native of Gelsenkirchen has found a starting place in recent weeks. His extension with the English formation would however be badly started. The Citizen leaders would not intend to make a big effort to keep him and the player seems inclined to look elsewhere.
