Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan says he will make a decision on his future when he has entered the final year of his current deal.

The German playmaker is out of contract at the end of next season but Gundogan, 28, is in no rush to commit himself further for the time being – despite stressing he is happy at the Etihad Stadium.

He told Bild: “It’s become the norm that a player who has another year on his contract period has a decision between separation or extension.

“I’m a little old-fashioned. It’s possible that I will go to the last year of my contract and then extend. “Maybe the next one will be my last big contract, so such a decision must be well considered.

“We have already had one or two talks. I do not feel there is pressure on the subject.

“In sporting terms, I’m very satisfied with City – there are less attractive jobs in Europe! “In this regard, there is nothing to prevent an extension. But nothing is decided yet.”

City are 3.75 to win the Champions League outright and 1.62 to win the Premier League, with Liverpool rated at 2.38.

The Premier League champions are the 2.20 favourites to win the FA Cup ahead of their fifth-round trip to Newport County, Chelsea are priced at 5.50 and Manchester United are 6.00.
