Now, in what would be a major move, FC Barcelona appear to have secured one of Manchester City’s biggest stars. Read there who is the player Pep Guardiola could lose.

FC Barcelona will sign a star from Manchester City

According to a report from Jose Alvarez of El Chiringuito in Spain, Ilkay Gundogan is the player ready to sign for FC Barcelona. The 32-year old was crucial for Manchester City to win four Premier Leagues, one FA Cup, four EFL Cups and two Community Shields.

“My sources tell me that the player who is a done deal for FC Barcelona on a free transfer in June is Ilkay Gundogan. He has personal reasons. He is gonna be a father in the next months and he believes that his time at Manchester City has ended. It’s practically a done deal with FC Barcelona. Ilkay Gundogan will be new player of FC Barcelona in June of 2023.”
