Borussia Dortmund midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has raised the prospect of a switch away from the Bundesliga by admitting that he doesn’t know what his future holds.
Speaking to Bild [as per The Sun], the deep-lying playmaker revealed that a transfer away from BVB remained an option as his ongoing contract impasse continues.
“A renewal? No decision has been taken yet,” the midfielder began.
“Of course, everything has to be evaluated properly, because a footballer’s career is short. Anything could happen” he continued.
“When I sign, it will most likely not be for just a year.”
The exquisite midfielder is unlikely to have a shortage of options as he nears a move away from Dortmund.
However, while the midfielder is understood to have rejected that particular opportunity, the possibility of a move to Liverpool still exists.
The tabloid noted that the player’s relationship with Jurgen Klopp—the pair enjoyed great success together at Dortmund, winning the Bundesliga title together in 2012—could tempt him to Anfield. The German manager was influential in the player’s development, and could do with Gundogan’s calming touch in the middle of his troubled midfield.
