IIkay Gundogan has agreed to join Barcelona on free this summer with a fixed three- year deal.

Ilkay Gundogan is allegedly close to signing with Barcelona after being persuaded by the Spanish team’s offer of a three-year fixed contract.

Since the German’s contract with City expires this summer, clubs outside of England may start negotiating the details of a free-transfer move as early as January.

And Gundogan has received the most alluring offer from Barcelona after first rejecting City’s suggestions for an extension.

According to Sport, the Catalan team initially gave him a two-year contract with an optional third due to his advanced age. And in order to finalize the transaction, that third year has now been made permanent.

According to reports, Gundogan started out by demanding a lot more money but has since agreed to a smaller pay because of Barca’s precarious financial circumstances.

After several years in Manchester, it is thought that the 66-cap international and his family are eager to relocate to Spain.

Xavi, the manager of Barcelona, is looking to strengthen his midfield after Sergio Busquets left the team after 18 years.

In 49 games across all competitions this season, Gundogan has contributed nine goals and seven assists.

‘Not just scoring goals, now he has his momentum. Against Leeds he was the player and again (against Everton). He can do everything and everything well. He doesn’t talk much but when he talks everyone listens and this is the power of the leader.

He shows his leadership in every training session, arriving on time, living 24 hours your job and play like he is playing… he is so clever and he is a guy who handles the pressure well.’
