Manchester City seem to have run out of patience with midfielder Ilkay Gundogan's contract situation, with manager Pep Guardiola reported to be open to listen to offers for the 28-year-old.

The claim now is that there is 'black smoke' between Gundogan and his employers, and if things don't change before the summer, Guardiola is considering sanctioning his sale for around   to avoid losing him for free in a year.



The Germany international has been used frequently by City so far this season as they chase a clean sweep of trophies, but with his contract expiring next summer, much has been made of his ?apparent reluctance to put pen to paper on a new deal.



?City were reported last month to have ?intensified efforts to tie him down, with Guardiola then reported to see him as a part of his plans going forward, but the prevailing belief was that the midfielder had concerns over what his long-term role would be.

Despite the growing unease between Gundogan and the club, he did feature for 90 minutes against Spurs and then again in Sunday's 3-1 win over Crystal Palace.

Though it was previously thought City were prepared to be patient, Italian outlet ?FcInterNews now say their tune has changed.

For now, then, it seems the tension is set to a light simmer.
