Gundogan is joining Barcelona. Ilkay Gundogan is on his way to Barcelona, a rumor that has been around for a long time. Now that rumor is coming true. According to British media BBC and Sky Sports, German star Ilkay Gundogan is joining the Spanish club Barcelona on a free transfer.
Manchester City won the treble in the season just ended. Gundogan was the captain of that team. His contract with City expired at the end of last season.

Gundogan continued his consistent performances until the season just ended. But to be specific, his performance in the last two seasons has been excellent. He played a great role in the big matches and played a big role in building the fortune of the team. In that sequence, he also got the leadership of the club.
