Ilkay Gundogan insists he could stay with Man City

Ilkay Gundogan insists he's happy to stay with Manchester City next season.

Despite there being just over a year to run on his current deal, the midfielder says he wants to stay

"Personally, I do not set a deadline for day X or Y, I'm relaxed as I still have a year. I would understand the anxiety if we were in March 2020," Gundogan told BILD.

"A mark for the season? With the Champions League, it would have been a 10 and praise. In England, we won all the possible titles, including the victory in the best championship in the world.

"The elimination from Europe was extremely hard, but this is football, but it would be wrong to cry again for the Champions League after these great successes.

"Of course, if I can still want something at club level for my future, then I want the Champions League. This is my big goal."
