Ilkay Gundogan news

Gundogan on verge of City transfer

Manchester City are close to confirming the signing of Borussia Dortmund midfielder Ilkay Gundogan. The 25-year-old has been tipped to leave his current club having stalled on talks over a contract extension.

According to German daily Bild, the Citizens have agreed on an initial £19.3m fee for the player with an additional £3m based on performance-related bonuses.

The report adds that the former Nuremburg star will ink a four-year deal with the Mancunian giants ahead of a formal announcement later in the week.

City boss Pep Guardiola is known to have permitted the move despite Gundogan having suffered a severe knee injury during the back end of last season.

Gundogan racked 40 appearances for BVB in all competitions last term.
