Barring a last-minute twist, İlkay Gündoğan will become a Barcelona player. As Relevo reported on Monday, the agreement between Barcelona and the player has been in place since the beginning of the week.
The Manchester City player will sign his Barcelona contract today, according to Relevo, and once his medical has been completed in Germany and he will become the second signing for next season after centre-back Iñigo Martínez.
City’s last attempt to renew him has been in vain, as they only offered him one year plus an optional year.
Pep Guardiola asked the club to make an effort after winning the Champions League, but the 32-year-old captain was not convinced by the offer the European champions made.
Gündogan has agreed to join the La Liga club for the next three seasons, although the last year will depend on the number of games played in the previous season.
Barcelona Director of Football Mateu Alemany has travelled to Munich to complete the deal, as Jijantes has revealed.
