Ilkay Gundogan has said that he is yet to make a decision on his future with just over a year remaining on his current contract at Man City.
The German international is having his best season in the Premier League since joining City, overcoming his recurring injury problems to provide five goals and two assists.
The 28-year-old could yet leave Eastlands in the near future however, and has even indicated that he may allow his contract that runs until the summer of 2020 run down before signing a new one.
“It’s become the norm that a player who has another year on his contract period has a decision between separation or extension,” Gundogan told Bild.
“I’m a little old-fashioned. It’s possible that I will go to the last year of my contract and then extend.
“Maybe the next one will be my last big contract, so such a decision must be well considered.
“We have already had one or two talks. I do not feel there is pressure on the subject.
“In sporting terms, I’m very satisfied with City – there are less attractive jobs in Europe!
“In this regard, there is nothing to prevent an extension. But nothing is decided yet.”
