Manchester City

Inter interest grows in Gundogan

17th April 2019, 10:47 by Alex Jack

Inter Milan are believed to be ready to take advantage of Ilkay Gundogan's current contract stand-off with Manchester City.

The future of the Germany midfielder remains very much in the balance, with the 28-year-old about to enter the final year of his deal at the Etihad.

According to various media outlets in Italy, bosses at Inter have tried to establish the current state of play and are ready to launch a bid to acquire him this summer.

Gundogan has kept City waiting on signing a renewal but the club are still hopeful the former Borussia Dortmund favourite will commit himself once the busy campaign is over.

However, the Manchester giants are ready to put the player up for sale if an agreement isn't reached in the coming weeks, with powerbrokers at the San Siro seemingly ready to pounce.

The Italian giants are believed to be willing to match Gundogan's present annual salary of £6m-per-year, although it may yet prove difficult for them to meet with City's £30m valuation.

Pep Guardiola made the German his first City signing when he took charge and the quadruple chasers will demand a profit on the £22m they paid to Dortmund in 2016.
