Manchester United, Manchester City and Barcelona faced a major setback as long-term target Ilkay Gundogan signed a contract extension with Borussia Dortmund.
The German midfielder ended the long-going transfer speculation about his future by putting pen to paper today.
The 24 year-old German midfielder, who was earlier reported to be leaving the club after Dortmund’s club president had announced it a few weeks ago, has performed a complete U-turn.
Gundogan has been one of the finest midfielders in the Bundesliga for 3-4 years, and has a Bundesliga and German Cup medal while having also participated in a Champions League final.
This is the message player posted on his social networking account.
The contract extension can be considered as the start of the ‘Tuchel era’ at the club as he sets to bring back the good old days to the club.
