Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola reveals that he would like midfielder Ilkay Gundogan to stay at the club beyond this season.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has revealed that he would like midfielder Ilkay Gundogan to stay at the club beyond this season.

The 31-year-old's future has recently been questioned, with one report claiming that the Citizens have told him to find a new club this summer.

Gundogan has since been linked with the likes of Barcelona and Arsenal, but Guardiola is unaware of these rumours and insists that he is keen to keep hold of the Germany international.

"If you ask me personally, I want [Gundogan] next season. There is no-one thinking he cannot be here," Guardiola told reporters on Friday.

"If he wants to leave, as a club we don't know it. All the Twitter accounts saying he will leave, I don't know. Maybe you know more than me."

While the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva have been making the headlines for their impressive performances in midfield this season, Gundogan has also been heavily involved this term, scoring eight goals and providing six assists in 42 appearances across all competitions.

Gundogan, who was the first signing made by Guardiola when the Spaniard arrived at City in the summer of 2016, will see his contract at the Etihad Stadium expire in June 2023.
