Ilkay Gundogan will arrive at Camp Nou.

Fabrizio Romano, who is well versed in the European soccer transfer market, announced on social media on Wednesday (June 22) that “Guindoan is heading to Barcelona. The final authorization to register the player has arrived at the club and the player has given the green light. 안전놀이터The contract was finalized a few minutes ago.”

“Guindoan has agreed to a two-year contract valid until June 2025. There is an option for a one-year extension,” he added, explaining the specific terms. With that, Romano added his signature “here we go” to signify the deal’s completion and highlight his move to Barcelona.

Gündoğan grew up in Bochum before making his professional debut in Nuremberg. He then moved to Dortmund, where he dominated the German Bundesliga. Each season, 토토사이트주소he battled injuries, both major and minor, but he was a force to be reckoned with every time he stepped on the pitch. Anchoring the Dortmund midfield, Gündoğan also earned a call-up to the German national team.

His next stop was England. He signed for Man City in a €27 million deal and made his debut at the Etihad Stadium. It was his first time in England, but he didn’t need to adjust. He went on to win numerous trophies with City and led his teammates in taking over Fernandinho’s captain’s armband after the end of last season.

They’ve finally peaked. Under Pep Guardiola, City won the English Premier League (EPL), English FA Cup, and UEFA Champions League (UCL), completing the “triple”. Captain Guindoan’s dedication is indescribable.

But what seemed like an eternity is about to come to an end. His contract with City is about to expire. The farewell, which was foreshadowed even before the end of the season, is taking shape.

That’s not to say there haven’t been contract talks. According to Sky Sports, “Guendouane and City have negotiated a new deal, but the length of the contract (one year plus a 12-month extension) has been a stumbling block.”

Gundogan has finally left Man City. His next stop is Barcelona. “Barcelona are desperate to sign Gundogan as soon as possible. Lionel Messi is no longer an option, so they are focusing on Guindoan.” Spain’s Sport also reported that “Guindo has already reached an agreement with Barcelona, although Man City and Arsenal are also interested. A three-year contract was a must for him.”

Since his arrival at Camp Nou, Guendouzi has brought a veteran presence to a midfield that includes Pedro, Gabi, and De Jong, all of whom are relatively young. An official announcement is expected soon.

Meanwhile, City are considering signing Mateo Kovacic instead of Guendouzi. According to The Guardian, “Chelsea have given City permission to start talks with Kovacic. Kovacic is ready for a new challenge. Chelsea need to reduce their squad and new manager Mauricio Pochettino has embarked on a rebuild,” predicting Kovacic’s move to City.

There are already reports that a deal has been agreed. According to the BBC, “City have agreed a deal with Chelsea to sign Kovacic for a fee of £30 million. This is in addition to a £25 million base fee and a £5 million bonus.” Expect big changes in the City midfield next season.
