Manchester City’s Ilkay Gundogan on why he rejected Manchester United transfer
Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan admits he turned down a transfer to Manchester United earlier in his career as he felt it wasn’t the time to move.
The Germany international has settled in well at City this summer after a move from Borussia Dortmund, where he’d spent the last five seasons of his career.
Gundogan developed into one of the top midfielders in Europe in his time with Dortmund, and wasn’t ready to rush into an exit when Premier League clubs came calling.
