Borussia Dortmund have told Manchester City injury hit-target Ilkay Gundogan to either leave at the end of the season or sign a long-term contract extension.
The BVB, having lost their captain, Mat Hummels to Bayern Munich earlier this week on Tuesday, are keen on keeping the rest of their stars, since, they have qualified for the Champions League football next season.
Gundogan’s agent met with City’s director of sport Txiki Begiristain in Amsterdam in March and according to reports in the German media, the deal is set to be finalized at the end of the season.
However, the situation is now complicated after the 25-year-old dislocated his kneecap in training last week.
The injury has ruled Gundogan out of the Euro 2016 which is slated for next month in France and has no certain date as to when he will be playing again.
The German has only one year left on his contract with the Black and Yellows.
