Germany midfielder Gundogan joins Manchester City


Germany midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has joined Manchester City following five years at Borussia Dortmund.

The 25-year old has signed a four-year deal worth a reported 25 million euros and is the club’s first signing since they confirmed Spanish coach Pep Guardiola would take over at the Etihad replacing Manuel Pellegrini.

Gundogan is currently recovering from a dislocated kneecap and therefore has been ruled out of Euro 2016 which starts on 10 June.

He will also miss the start of the Premier League.

At Dortmund Gundogan made more than 150 appearances and helped the side to a domestic double in the 2011-12 season.

He also helped the club reach the Champions League final in 2013, where they lost to Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich.
