Fabrizio Romano Provides Major Update on Ilkay Gundogan's Manchester City Future Amid Exit Links

There are serious chances of Ilkay Gundogan leaving Manchester City this summer, according to Fabrizio Romano, with talks ongoing between the board and the midfielder's representatives.

There has been ongoing speculation around the future of Ilkay Gundogan at the Etihad Stadium past the summer, with a recent report claiming the Germany international is set to bid farewell to the Premier League champions at the end of the season.

Gundogan has just over a year left on his current contract at Manchester City and whilst there has not been much talk of a potential renewal for the 31-year-old, a departure will see Pep Guardiola lose his very first acquisition following his arrival to east Manchester in 2016.

It was revealed on Tuesday that Gundogan's agent had been left furious with the talk about the midfielder's future ahead of Manchester City's title decider against Aston Villa this weekend, as the Blues look to wrap up their fourth Premier League crown in five seasons.
