City midfield maestro David Silva could be on Real Madrid’s summer shopping list, according to reports this morning.
Website sportsmole.co.uk claim Real have shown renewed interest in the 27-year-old Spain international.
“Real Madrid have reportedly drawn up a three man shortlist of Neymar, David Silva and Isco to replace Cristiano Ronaldo should the forward leave the club this summer,” writes Paul Gorst.
“The Spanish champions are ready to offload the Portuguese forward at the end of the season according to El Pais, and the same publication has claimed that Madrid are lining up Santos star Neymar, Malaga's Isco and Manchester City playmaker Silva as potential replacements.”
“Dzeko is still on Borussia Dortmund's agenda ahead of the summer transfer window,” writes Charles Perrin.
“Spanish football site Fichajes.net reports Dortmund have contacted City about a possible move for Dzeko.
“They also suggest that they want to speed up the negotiation process, as Marco Reus is linked with a move away from the Bundesliga giants.
“Dzeko's contract with City runs up in 2015.”
Meanwhile, Italian outfit Roma are reportedly preparing to tempt Blues boss Roberto Mancini back to his native land this summer.
“Mancini, who travelled to Genoa last week to watch Roma against Sampdoria, has emerged as the front-runner for the Roma job, however, following the sacking of Zdenek Zeman earlier this month,” reports The Telegraph’s Mark Ogden.
“Although Mancini played and managed Roma’s city rivals Lazio, it is understood that Roma are unconcerned by his links to their co-tenants at the Olympic Stadium and that a move for the Manchester City manager will be triggered if it becomes clear that the Premier League champions are to seek a new manager.”
