Almost 50 parties and almost 4 one thousand minutes (46 and 3.731) back the fact that the signing of Ilkay Gündogan has been a rotundo success for the FC Barcelona, although the Barcelona club seems that it will remain without titles this season. The German arrived free the past summer, after winning it everything with the Manchester City, and immediately turned into a fixed in the XI of Xavi Hernández, something that finished extending by all the course.

In fact, of the five signings that the Barcelona group did in 2023, six if we want to include to Vitor Roque in the shopping of the season, the Teutonic has been the only that has delivered total security regarding performance and regularity, being besides respected by the injuries in the 8 months of competition that go until the moment. Already it was as pivote, as inner or until as mediapunta, Gündogan has known to deliver his best football to the Barça, still when no always has had to the ideal partners in the midfield.

The injuries of the others 'jugones' of the team; Frenkie of Jong, Pedri and Gavi, have engaged to Ilkay has to have to create much more game of the that expected in principle, especially when being accompanied of a pivote of emergency like Christensen. Besides, by this same reason almost has not been able to receive rest, but still like this has had a near performance to the 8 points during almost all the parties of the course, even when clearly it is not a player that stand out by his physical profile.

The others five signings of the Barça have not been to the height of Ilkay

Independently of if the note of the German can be distinct to the mentioned, the reality is that yes that has surpassed widely to Oriol Romeu, like the another mediocampista fichado in summer, in addition to Joao Félix and Vitor Roque in the offensive line or Cancel and Iñigo Martínez in defence. Although certainly also it arrived like the safest bet of all this group, Gündogan has reaffirmed it in the field, being even the only, beside the Brazilian youngster, that seems to have ensured his presence in the staff of the next season.

To the margin of his 33 years of age and that it could receive offers of Saudi Arabia, for example, the Barça has to keep to his best mediocampista of this season, and now yes, surround it of the best possible footballers. With the continuity of Xavi still pending, the ex City the same outlines to have another whole season like titling, especially if his regularity and level is similar to the that is having from almost a year in the City Condal.
