Pep Guardiola says he remains hopeful Ilkay Gundogan will extend his stay at Manchester City after his man-of-the match performance in the FA Cup final.
The Germany international was once again among the goals at crucial moments for City as his brace helped them win the FA Cup over rivals Manchester United and go one step closer to completing a historic treble with the Champions League final against Inter set for next Saturday.
Guardiola and Gundogan, who live in the same Manchester city centre apartment block, have built a close friendship. And Guardiola has not made any secret of his desire for Gundogan – one of his first signings as City boss in 2016 – to stay.
If an exit is sealed, Barcelona looks to be the most likely destination.
