Germany's Ilkay Gundogan

Manchester City fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to share their thoughts after the club signed Ilkay Gundogan from Borussia Dortmund.

Manchester City completed a move for Gundogan on Thursday morning, paying Borussia Dortmund £21million for his services.

He becomes the first signing of Pep Guardiola’s reign at the Etihad Stadium, with the new manager expected to be busy in this summer transfer window.


At that price, his capture is being seen as something of a steal, with the German midfielder having starred in the Bundesliga for Dortmund for several years.

And Manchester City fans have reacted positively on Twitter to the news they have completed their first signing of the summer.









£21m for Gundogan. Good business from @MCFC tbh.

It will now be interesting to see where Gundogan will fit into the City team under Guardiola.

He is out injured until around December, having dislocated his kneecap earlier this year, an injury that ruled him out of Euro 2016 with Germany.

When he is fit though, he is likely to be a key man for Guardiola’s City revolution and perhaps his arrival could hasten the departure of Yaya Toure from the Etihad.
