It appears Txixi Begiristain is already working on a deal for the Borussia Dortmund star.

Manchester City are set to do plenty of business in the summer as they look to recover from a scrappy season - in which they look unlikely to regain their Premier League title.

They will also be under new management. Pep Guardiola is swapping Bayern Munich for Manchester City in the summer and he will want players who fit in his playing style in England.

One such player is Borussia Dortmund midfielder Ilkay Gundogan.

The German international has been back to his best form at Dortmund after over a year out with serious back injury.

Now Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf has posted a rather revealing photo regarding such a move. They have this snap on their official website, in a story about Guardiola's targets, of City chief Txixi Begiristain and Gundogan's uncle and agent Ilhan Gundogan in Amsterdam:

This is rather revealing evidence of City's interest in Gundogan for next season.

Guardiola met up with Begiristain in Amsterdam this week to discuss the future of City, including transfer targets - but it appears that they are well ahead of the curve in the pursuit of the Dortmund star.
