Borussia Dortmund has apparently made a long-term contract offer to its former player Ilkay Gündogan. That reports the Spanish Sports. The Catalan newspaper writes that the offer gives Gündogan the opportunity to remain in another position at BVB after his career.
Gündogan’s contract with newly crowned Champions League winners Manchester City expires at the end of June. Therefore, there have been rumors about the future of the 32-year-old for a long time.
Loud Sports Gündogan has already given FC Barcelona a verbal commitment to a three-year contract. Al-Ittihad from Saudi Arabia, Karim Benzema’s new club, have also submitted a lucrative offer. In addition, Paris Saint-Germain and Arsenal are said to be interested in Gündogan.
“I’m very happy. The future? I don’t know that yet,” said Gündogan after the victorious CL final on Saturday. Across from sky he let it be known that he had recently pushed his future plans “a bit aside” because of the important games: “But now I have to deal with it.”
Gündogan once played for BVB between 2011 and 2016. Together with the current sports director Sebastian Kehl, he won the double with Borussia in 2012.
In 2016 Gündogan switched from Dortmund to ManCity for 27 million euros. Today’s England captain has played 304 competitive games for coach Pep Guardiola’s team. He scored 60 goals and 40 assists.
