The former Bayern Munich coach has made Ilkay Gundogan his first signing taking him on a four-year deal from Borussia Dortmund.

The signing was confirmed on the club’s official website. The former Dortmund player said he is delighted to join City.

“When I learned of City’s interest my heart was set on coming here and things have moved very quickly.

“Now I have a new challenge and that is to achieve great things with City. The opportunity to work with a coach like Pep Guardiola is something I am really looking forward to and I am flattered to be the first signing the Club has made this summer,” said the player.

The 25-year-old midfielder has scored four goals for the German national team in his 16 appearances.

He made more than 150 appearances for the German club in the last five seasons.

He has however been ruled out of the German squad for the Euros as he is recovering from a knee injury.
