According to a recent report by Sport, Barcelona are interested in signing Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan.
The plan is believed to be for Gundogan to step in and possibly replace Sergio Busquets, the aging veteran who appears to be on his last legs as a professional at elite level.
The German midfielder didn’t exactly shine at the World Cup for his country, yet Barca believe he could very well fit into their system.
Gundogan still has a lot to do and has the ability to go along with his confidence on and off the ball, but that depends on whether Pep Guardiola still sees him as a valuable and consistent member of the squad or not.
City have the kind of crazy strength in depth that would be enough for any league title, but Gundogan has given them enough great moments over the years to make them think twice about his future.
