If there was ever a sign we are nearing the end of the season, it’s the sheer volume of transfer speculation stories which are beginning to saturate the back pages.

First off this morning, rumours of a City bid for Borussia Dortmund’s Marco Reus have resurfaced with goal.com claiming an offer will be put on the table before the end of the season.

“The Premier League side are preparing a package that will double Reus' €71,000-a-week wages and will make a formal offer to Dortmund in the next 10 days,” reports Greg Stobart.

“The 23-year-old attacking midfielder is understood to be reluctant to leave the German club just a year after joining from Borussia Monchengladbach - but City will test their resolve with a big-money bid.”

Meanwhile, the Daily Mail suggests City defender Gael Clichy is wanted by Süper Lig outfit Galatasaray.

“The club has added Manchester City left-back Gael Clichy to their summer transfer wish list,” writes John Drayton.


“The ambitious Turkish club want to team him up with Wesley Sneijder and Didier Drogba and also plan a £12m bid for Bayern Munich's Arjen Robben.

“Clichy, 27, has two years left on contract and is keen to stay but that won't stop Galatasaray asking.

“They also like City's Joleon Lescott and Kolo Toure but Lescott will weigh up Premier League offers and Toure is tempted by Monaco.”

Finally and according to talkSport, the Blues are set to go head to head with Italian giants Juventus for the signature of Sampdoria midfielder Pedro Obiang.

“The 21-year-old has been strongly linked with a move to the Etihad Stadium following his impressive displays and Roberto Mancini is expected to make a move for him,” the website claims.

“The talented youngster has already represented Spain at Under-21 level and is close to making his breakthrough into the senior side.”

Of course mcfc.co.uk will be first to confirm any transfer news as soon as it becomes official this summer.
