Ilkay Gundogan has been one to put smiles on faces at the Etihad. The midfielder never fails to add that extra threat to City’s already formidable attack.
The midfielder has one year left on his running contract with City and has recently been voted as club captain. This came in quite timely after Fernandinho departed the club.
Gundogan led the team to their 4-0 win over Bournemouth and the boss was more than impressed. It is not a surprise that the club are preparing to offer him a new contract, per reports from Daily Star Sports.
Guardiola still regards Gundogan as a pivotal figure in his first-team plans for this season and beyond. This is why Man City have decided to extend the player’s contract.
They certainly will love to give their captain-elect more years at the club and see him guide them to more victories and trophies.
