Strikers continue to dominate the City headlines, with another name added to the list this morning – Borussia Dortmund star Robert Lewandowski.
Lewandowski has been linked extensively with Bayern Munich, and also with Manchester United, but a deal hasn’t materialised and City could be set to swoop in.
Paul Clennam writes: “The Poland international's future remains up in the air after Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke poured cold water on his expected move to Bayern Munich on Sunday, insisting that Lewandowski wouldn't follow team-mate Mario Gotze in joining their Bundesliga rivals this summer.
“And City, who held informal talks with Lewandowski's agent during last summer's European Championships, could look to swoop in on a cut-price move for the striker, who has only a year remaining on his current contract at Westfalenstadion that he is refusing to renew.”
Elsewhere, the future of Carlos Tevez is still very much under discussion.
While the Telegraph recently reported that the Argentinian was set to stay with the Blues, the Daily Express suggests that the striker could reunite with Mario Balotelli and Nigel de Jong at AC Milan.
The paper quotes AC Milan Vice-President, Adriano Galliani as saying: “Carlitos won’t betray me.
“I like Carlitos a lot, because he’s a ‘nasty’ player. His wages? There will be no problems with Tevez.”
Staying in Milan, reports in Italy suggest that cross city rivals, Inter are keen on a move for Aleks Kolarov.
The defender is familiar with Serie A after spending three years with Lazio prior to his switch to the Etihad Stadium, and the Italian side are said to be eager to add his experience – that one’s according to website ForzaItalianFootball.com, via Tuttosport.
“Mazzarri is famous for using a three-man defence with wingbacks getting forward to support the attack. This style brought him success with Napoli and he reportedly plans to use the same system with new club Inter,” writes Michael Clarkson.
“Tuttosport have claimed that Mazzarri’s primary focus is to bring in new competition for the wing-back positions and has targeted Kolorov and Torino’s D’Ambrosio.”
