Ilkay Gundogan makes shock admission about his Manchester City future

Manchester City star Ilkay Gundogan has admitted he is considering quitting the club for a new challenge at the end of the season.

“There is no decision yet, otherwise I would have signed or rejected a contract,” said Gundogan, speaking ahead of City’s last 16-second leg Champions League tie against Schalke on Tuesday.

“We’re still in talks, but I don’t feel there is much pressure. Also, we’re still competing in all the competitions and want to go as far as possible in everything. One day there has to be a decision, but I’m very happy here and playing under Pep.

“This is something everyone has to decide for themselves. I’m 28-years-old, so my next contract will maybe decide where I will be for the end of my career. Maybe someone has an inner feeling to go for a new challenge or to change something.

“I’m always open-minded for challenges, but it’s a personal situation. Everyone has to make his own decision. At the moment I try to play as good as possible and after the season we are going to sit and talk again. My main target is to go to all the competitions.”

Gundogan has emerged as a major target for Barcelona.
