Arsenal star Xhaka opens door to Gladbach return

Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka has opened the door to return to Borussia Monchengladbach.

The Swiss international spent four seasons at the Bundesliga side before joining Arsenal for £35m in 2016.

Xhaka recently signed a contract extension with Arsenal until 2024 and would be keen on returning to Germany.

He said on the Mit Geredet podcast: "I never made the move from Borussia to Arsenal for the money. It was a dream for me to play in England.

"I have just extended my contract, which still has two and a half years to run.

"Then I'll be 32, and if Max Eberl (Monchengladbach's director of sport) is willing to bring me back when I'm 32, my door will be open."

Roma were interested in Xhaka before he committed his future to Arsenal last summer.
