Ilkay Gundogan is open to extending his contract at Manchester City, but insists nothing has been decided and his future is still to be clarified.
The 28-year-old has been in his best form since arriving at the Etihad Stadium this season, impressing for Pep Guardiola’s side, and the City boss would like his German maestro to stick around beyond his current deal.
Gundogan’s contract expires in June 2020, meaning come the end of the season he’ll be entering his last 12 months, and there have been rumours that his former club Borussia Dortmund are monitoring his situation.
The cultured midfielder has spoken out about his future in an interview with SPORT BILD and said he will consider his future carefully.
“It may be that my next contract is my last big one, so such a decision has to be well thought out,” said Gundogan.
“We already had one or two talks, I don’t feel any pressure on the issue. It’s possible for me to go into the last year of my contract and extend it.
“Sporting-wise, I’m very satisfied at City and there are few more attractive jobs in Europe. In that respect, I have nothing against a [contract] extension. But nothing is decided yet.”
Ilkay has scored 5 goals and assisted 2 for his teammates in 13 Premier League starts this season, already his best goal scoring campaign at City with plenty of time to add to his tally.
