Ilkay Gundogan of Manchester City will wait to see if Barcelona harden up their interest before deciding on his future. The German international has enjoyed an outstanding season but has just two years to run on his existing deal at the Etihad.

The 30-year-old has spent the last five years at City and was Pep Guardiola’s first signing. He remains happy at the club but has also made no secret of his admiration for Barca in the past.

For now, Gundogan will focus on the Euros and is happy to keep his options open while on international duty. Guardiola is looking to shuffle his midfield resources as he looks to make room for Aston Villa skipper Jack Grealish.
