Ilkay Gundogan’s agent has denied rumors that the Manchester City captain has agreed to a move to Barcelona.
With just over two months left on his contract with City, Gundogan was reportedly set to join Barça as a free agent on a two-year, renewable 12-month deal.
However, Ilhan Gündoğan, the 32-year-old’s uncle and spokesman, denied speculation that the German midfielder had already decided to join the La Liga leaders.
He told AS: “I’m surprised where the stories about the closing of the agreement come from so many weeks ago.
“So far there is no agreement with any club. It has not yet been decided where he will play in the coming years.”
He added: “Ilkay can still win three big trophies this season as Manchester City captain. That’s the only thing he’s focused on right now.”
Gundogan has won four Premier League titles since joining City from Borussia Dortmund in 2016, and has also won the EFL Cup and FA Cup four times in 2019.
