"It is so intelligent, so intelligent, so competitive. Believe me, is one of the best players that have trained in my career. It is of first class". Like this it has described Pep Guardiola to Ilkay Gündogan this past weekend, leaving clear that it wants to convince to the player so that it renew his agreement with the Manchester City and finish altering the plan of the FC Barcelona, the one who carries months keeping contacts with the representative of the mediocampista.

The culés, especially from the directive, have bet by the footballer of 32 years so that it arrive from the next 1 July like free agent, having right now one some advantage in some negotiations that, this yes, have to close the sooner possible so that there is not some surprise. And it is there where Guardiola wants to try take advantage of his last opportunity. So that the operation have a happy final. There is taut calm.

A moment ideal so that Pep try 'throw' of the feelings

With an end of season where the City is alive in the three more important competitions that contests, Premier; Champions and FA Cup, seems little likely that Gündogan finish defining his future before all this was finalised, or near to do it at least. In fact, this past Saturday the German was the big appears marking a doublet in the Etihad Stadium in front of the Leeds (2-1), that even could be a 'hat-trick' after the gesture of Erling Haaland yielding him a penalti that finally sent to the stick.

After this big demonstration, and being as always the captain of the team, Gündogan went out ovacionado in the minute 93 of party, in what it seemed another strategic decision of Guardiola so that it checked the affection of his fans. The Spanish technician know which is the posture of his player and that if it has not accepted to renew still is little likely that do it, but yes that is doing what is in his power to try change the opinion of the mediocampista in these last weeks.

Big part of the duties already are done

Of the side of the Barça keeps the tranquility and follows working to arrive to an agreement by, at least, two seasons with the player. Although in the Camp Nou follow without being of the all convinced regarding the index card of the footballer, also is true that with what follows showing to the highest level does not seem very likely that Gündogan follow accepting go down his requirements salariales.

The Barcelona club equally will have to do a lot of movements to be able to fit the agreement of the German inside his already complicated 'fair play' financial that marks him LaLiga. The difference of what occurs in other championships with norms less strict is evident, by what the Barça needs to give with the most adapted formula for the agreement, like sucedió with Lewandowski, the one who goes earning more to measure that advances his agreement.
