Steven goes live to bid farewell to City skipper Ilkay Gundogan

Ilkay Gundogan to Barcelona is all but confirmed by Manchester City.

Steven pays tribute to the captain and all of his incredible achievements following seven years at the club.

304 games, 60 goals and 14 trophies after famously announcing his own transfer to City, he departs as a treble hero.

Gundogan cemented himself in Manchester City history. He covered himself and the club in glory. While he didnā€™t have an easy ride, he certainly made his mark in Manchester.

Ilkay made the scousers cry. Then he came for the red side of Manchester. Now, he makes the blues cry.

Nevertheless, fans have nothing but respect for the dependable skipper and have taken to social media to share best wishes.

Once a blue, always a blue!
