They claim Gundogan ‘loves’ playing under Guardiola and is comfortable in Manchester.

Gundogan was among the first of Guardiola’s new signings when he took over the managerial hotseat at City in 2016.

Though his first season was disrupted by the recurrence of a serious knee injury, he played a key role in their record-breaking Premier League success last year.

Gundogan helped them to a league and Carabao Cup double in 2018, making 48 appearances across the board and scoring six times.
