Barcelona’s interest in signing İlkay Gündoğan for free has created uncertainty regarding the 32-year-old midfielder’s potential move to the Camp Nou. The Catalan club’s own situation, combined with Manchester City’s efforts to retain him, have raised doubts about Gündoğan’s arrival. Although the player’s agent had reached a preliminary agreement for a three-year deal. Recent developments have instilled fear within the Camp Nou offices that they might miss out on securing the German midfielder.

That’s because Manchester City have changed their stance. After offering a one-year deal, they ‘now agree to offer a long-term contract as per the player’s wish’. This, coupled with Barca’s economic uncertainty has caused some concerns for the Spanish giants.

Barcelona are waiting for La Liga’s approval to register renewals of a few of their players, which has to be completed first before carrying out new signings. They haven’t received the approval so far.

Gündoğan and his aspirations

While Xavi Hernández’s Barcelona side remains confident about obtaining approval from La Liga. The delay in receiving it could potentially jeopardize other transfer operations, including İlkay Gündoğan’s potential move. However, Manchester City’s willingness to meet the player’s demands for a contract renewal, coupled with Barcelona’s own financial situation. Should aid in reaching an agreement to extend Gündoğan’s deal with the English club.

İlkay Gündoğan is anticipated to make a decision regarding his future following the Champions League final on June 10th. Barcelona sees this as an opportunity and remains hopeful of persuading the German midfielder to join their ranks. However, at present, Barcelona’s optimism regarding Gündoğan’s free transfer to the club in the summer has diminished.

The still director of football, Mateu Alemany, is trying to smooth things over and bring all parties closer together. He understands that he is a player that Xavi wants for his next project and also the desire of the player and his family to come to Barcelona. But an effort will be made to get the final OK from Joan Laporta. The next few weeks will be decisive because City could return to the scene after the German’s recent performances. Including two goals in this weekend’s 2-1 win over Leeds United.
