Galatasaray set up meeting with Barcelona star for dream move

Barcelona face a pivotal summer of significant player sales to accommodate new head coach Hansi Flick’s vision and player acquisitions, and one such move could be involving Ilkay Gundogan and Galatasaray.

Speculation surrounds the futures of key players like Ronald Araujo, Frenkie de Jong, and Raphinha. Nevertheless, it seems that another shocking report about Gundogan has just gained traction.

Ilkay Gundogan joined Barcelona on a free transfer from Manchester City last summer. He has quickly proven his worth despite a challenging season for the club. His individual performances have been stellar, making him a future valuable asset for Flick. The latter previously coached Gundogan during his tenure as Germany’s manager.

The German international’s contribution has not gone unnoticed, especially by Galatasaray‘s president, Dursun Ozbek. Ozbek openly expressed his desire to sign Gundogan. “We need to sign about three players to compete in the Champions League. Maybe it’s time to try to complete the signing of my dreams: Ilkay Gundogan”, he said.

Galatasaray arrange meeting with player

Sport even add that Galatasaray are actively pursuing Gundogan, with President Ozbek planning to meet Gundogan’s brother and agent to discuss a potential transfer. Despite this, Mundo Deportivo has reported that the player has no intention of leaving Barcelona. He is under contract until 2025 and is desperate to remain at the club, largely due to his strong relationship with Flick.

The midfielder’s performances in his debut season at the Monjuic have been impressive, with five goals and 14 assists. His influence on the pitch is critical for Barcelona, especially as they aim to improve under Flick’s leadership.
