Barcelona manager Xabi wants Manchester City’s Ilkay Gundogan.
He has already established himself as a veteran midfielder at Man City. Gundogan, who played a leading role in the 2012-13 European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) runner-up at Borussia Dortmund, is a midfielder who shows a high level of tactical understanding and active activity.

In the 2016-17 season, Gundoan, who moved to Manchester City after being selected by manager Pep Guardiola, was manager Pep Guardiola’s ‘Man City’s first signing’.

He took on the role of a housekeeper, covering the midfield with activity so that aggressive players such as Kevin de Bruyne could freely develop their attacks.
In the 2020-21 season, he also showed his scoring instinct. Gundoan played an active part in Mezzala’s position due to The Bruiner’s injury that season and vomited up a double-digit score. This season, too, he is a force in the midfield of the team, recording 3 goals and 3 assists in 24 league games.
Meanwhile, Barcelona is aiming for Gundoan to reinforce the midfield next season. Reporter Javi Miguel of the Spanish media ‘As’ said,메이저놀이터 “Director Xavi is aiming for Gundoan. This corresponds to Xavi’s perfect plan.”
