Borussia Dortmund Reject Claims that Ilkay Gundogan will join Manchester City

gundoGerman giants Borussia Dortmund have taken to social media to refute claims that midfielder Ilkay Gundogan will join Manchester City in the summer.

Gundogan has refused to sign a new contract with Dortmund which means that he will be a free agent in the summer of 2017.

His refusal to sign a new contract has fueled claims that Manchester City are in pole position to sign the 25-year-old.

However, taking full advantage of the power of social media, Borussia Dortmund reiterated their claim that Gundogan will not leave the club.

Referring to the news that Gundogan will leave the club, The Bundesliga Club tweeted “Really? We should know about that, shouldn’t we? Truth is, we don’t know anything about that.”

This news might come as a blow to Manchester City fans who would have been looking forward to seeing Gundogan in sky blue next season.

Gundogan suffered an injury at the start of the 2013/14 Season which ruled him out for the whole year. In addition to missing a full year of club football, Gundogan also missed the chance to represent Germany in the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

However, ever since he has come back from injury, Gundogan has showed the world his capabilities once again – an instrumental figure in the resurgence of Borussia Dortmund this season.
