Premier League: Manchester City to sign Ilkay Gundogan


Germany international Ilkay Gundogan is likely to become the first signing for Manchester City under new manager Pep Guardiola. Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund have agreed a deal for the midfielder, according to Goal.com. The transfer fee is believed to be in the region of 26 million euro, with additional performance bonuses. The player's agent has met Manchester City director Txiki Begiristain earlier this year, but Juventus and Barcelona have also been interested in his signature.

Gundogan will not play for Germany at Euro 2016 due to a dislocated knee cap, an injury that will keep him out of the pitch for most of the summer. Manchester City are also believed to be targeting Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos and Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba. New manager Pep Guardiola will take charge on July 1st but he will most likely be involved in the club's dealings even before that date.

Guardiola said farewell to Bayern Munich with a domestic double after the Bavarians defeated Borussia Dortmund in the German Cup final on Sunday. Ilkay Gundogan has made 105 league appearances for Borussia Dortmund since joining them in 2011 and scored 10 goals. He has 16 caps and 4 goals for the German national team.

Manchester City are 6/4 at Bet365 to win the Premier League title next season.

    As it was speculated since the moment when Pep Guardiola signed for Manchester City - Ilkay Gundogan will be Pep's first signing and he will base his teamplay around him. I think that this guy is probably underrated since from Borussia Dortmund everyone is only talking about Reus, Hummels and Obamejang. And yet, another weaking of Borussia's lineup. I hope they bounce back from another loss.

    Dortmund have made couple of expensive sells to the Manchester teams this summer so plus a Hummels transfer their income is more than 100 mill euros from just three players, not a bad one.
    Man United once again hugely over spent fort heir new Dortmund buy but it's another theme.
