Ilkay Gundogan has been named at the top of the Barcelona midfielder list of candidates.
Spanish media ‘Sport’ reported on the 27th (Korean time), “Barcelona will sign Gundogan as a free agent this summer, not Ruben Neves.”
Reinforcing the midfield has been cited as one of Barcelona’s goals this summer. This is because not only the range of players that can be used in midfield is narrow, but also had to prepare for the departure of Sergio Busquets.
Initially, Neves was mentioned as a potential recruitment candidate. Super agent Jorge Mendes has reportedly recommended Neves to Barcelona as the successor to Busquets. 안전놀이터
The answer that came back was a refusal. According to reports, Barcelona coach Xabi Hernández and other coaching staff were against the signing of Neves.
Instead, he chose Gundogan. ‘Sport’ said, “The player who fits coach Xabi’s plan is Gundogan. Barcelona are ready to offer Gundogan a two-year contract.”
“Coach Xavi will bring in a midfielder even if Busquets stays. Gundogan will bring experience to the young Barcelona midfield.”
Gundogan’s contract with Manchester City (Man City) expires in June. The fact that he does not need to spend a transfer fee is inevitably attractive to Barcelona, whose finances are unstable.
