Swansea manager Michael Laudrop is considering re-signing Scott Sinclair, according to this morning’s media reports.
“Laudrup has hinted that Swansea could take Manchester City misfit Scott Sinclair back to Wales next season as he looks to lessen the load on top scorer Michu's shoulders,” claims ESPN.
“The winger left the Liberty Stadium at the end of August in a £6.2 million deal but has only started two league games for Roberto Mancini's side since then.
“And while Sinclair, who has played just 69 minutes of Premier League football since September, has suggested he is considering his options, the Capital One Cup winners indicated they may try to re-sign him.”
Meanwhile, Edin Dzeko and Micah Richards have been linked with a move to Napoli as part of a deal to take Edinson Cavani to City.
“City seem willing to meet Cavani's £55 million release clause, but it looks like Mancini will try and reduce the club's financial outlay by throwing in one of his squad members as a sweetener,” claims clubcall.com.
“That could see England international defender, Richards, who has only made four appearances this season after suffering countless injuries move in the opposite direction.
“Other reports are claiming that Bosnian international striker, Dzeko, could be the man used as a makeweight given that he has always struggled for regular first-team football at the Etihad Stadium.”
“Reports suggested that Nasri could even leave the Etihad in the summer, but the former Arsenal player appears to be back to his best in recent weeks and was on target as City defeated Chelsea in last month's FA Cup semi-final,” reports Sky Sports News.
“Platt admits that Nasri has not always been impressive for City, but values him highly and believes he is one of the key performers at the Etihad.”
