OFFICIAL: Gundogan joins Barcelona on a free transfer from Man City


OFFICIAL: Ilkay Gündogan has agreed to terms with Barcelona until June 2025, with a one-year extension option.

The 32-year-old, who scored 60 goals in 304 games for the Cityzens and was instrumental in their treble triumph last season, has a £342 million release clause.

Xavi has made his first significant signing for the next season. The club will soon provide information on Gündogan’s official presentation as a new first-team player.

The German midfielder, who will turn 33 on October 24, comes to Barcelona with a long career and a reputation as a world-class player. He got his first kick, like any child who loves the ball, at Gelsenkirchen, the home of gifted midfielders like himself and Mesut zil.

Gündogan’s arrival means the signing of a player with a proven track record at the top level of world football, a key player in Manchester City’s treble and pivotal in his last years at the Premier League side. Barça will receive one of the best midfielders in the world for free.

He spent seven seasons at City, where he joined from Borussia Dortmund in 2016. He was the ‘Guardiola era”s first signing. He has been one of the team’s finest players in recent years.
