From Italy: Inter ready to make move for Manchester City star – on one condition

Inter will make Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gündogan a primary summer target if they qualify for the Champions League, Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport reports in its Wednesday edition.

That is a big ‘if’ with Inter three points behind fourth-placed Lazio with one game left. The two teams meet each other on the final day of the Serie A season and an Inter win would secure them fourth on Italy’s head-to-head rule, with the two sides having drawn 0-0 in the reverse fixture.

And should Inter pull off a big win at the Stadio Olimpico, their Chinese owners Suning will sanction a big money move for Gündogan, an important player in Pep Guardiola’s City squad, but by no means a guaranteed starter in his side.

The 27-year-old started 15 of City’s 38 Premier League fixtures this season, appearing as a substitute in 15 others. Despite being in and out of the side, it would take a lot of convincing from Inter to lure him from the Etihad, where he is part of a successful team that collected two trophies this season.

Gündoğan signed a four-year contract with City in 2016, joining for an estimated fee of £20million. The Germany midfielder is said to be enjoying life in Manchester and wants a new and improved deal.
