Barcelona are eyeing Man City’s Ilkay Gundogan as a possible target for the summer transfer window, but they face financial hurdles and competition from other clubs.
The Spanish giants are struggling with money problems and need to offload some players before they can bring in new ones.
Lionel Messi and Martin Zubimendi are the top names on Barcelona’s wish list, according to Mundo Deportivo, but if they fail to secure either of them, they will turn their attention to Gundogan.
The German midfielder is out of contract at the end of the season and could join Barcelona for free. Mundo Deportivo claims that Gundogan is very keen on a switch to the Camp Nou and is tempted by the longer deal they are offering him, even though Man City have offered him more money.
However, Barcelona’s ability to sign Gundogan depends on their financial situation and if they can’t afford him, he will probably stay at the Etihad for another season.
