Ilkay Gundogan has stated he could return to Borusssia Dortmund in the nearest future. The midfielder has made a blitzing start to his time at City.
The 25-year old sealed a four-year contract move to Manchester City from Dortmund back in June.
Following knee surgery that saw him miss Euro 2016, Gundogan had to wait until last week to make his City debut – a 4-0 rout of Borussia Monchengladbach in the Champions League.
A first goal followed in Saturday’s 4-0 Premier League win over Bournemouth and Gundogan wants to prove himself away from Dortmund before considering any potential return to the Bundesliga.
“If it was the case in the next one or two years, I would probably not be happy about it,” he told Sport Bild.
“Because it would probably mean that I have failed or not developed myself.
“If I’m 29 or 30, I do not know if [Dortmund would] still want me. Basically, I would not exclude the possibility, but now I have other big targets.”
