The LaLiga team, FC Barcelona have signed Ilkay Gundogan on a free transfer from treble winners Premier League (PL) team, Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola‘s first signing at City was Gundogan, notwithstanding the German having to miss time with a knee injury when he arrived from the Bundesliga club, Borussia Dortmund (BVB).

Gundogan established himself as an ideal candidate for the big occasion at City, particularly in the past two seasons when he scored important goals that helped City win multiple trophies. In his career at Manchester City, Gundogan has taken field for more than 300 games and has netted 60 goals.
