Ilkay Gündoğan has taken to his official Facebook page to address media speculation regarding his future.

The Germany international rejected reports stating that he has agreed to join any club and that he his agent was demanding over €12 million per season.

The statement reads, “In recent weeks, I, like you, read again and again that where I was signing was already agreed.

“Yesterday an ominous number [regarding wage demands] appeared in the media and so I have now decided to say something about it.

“The 2014/15 season strictly speaking only ends on 30.06.2015.

“Although so far there have hardly been any transfers completed in Europe, rumor to rumor I was supposed to have demanded more and more, putting off making a final decision.

“Forgotten was this: I have one more year on my contract with BVB [Dortmund].

“What is important to me is that I’m not gambling financially or using delaying tactics.”
