Manchester City morning news: Hart and Milner tipped for new deals, boss eyes £50m midfielder

A round up of news stories this morning about Manchester City.

Joe Hart and James Milner will reportedly be offered new deals at Manchester City.

The England goalkeeper and midfielder have both played key parts in the club’s season so far.

The pair were thought to be seeking assurances over their futures at the Premier League champions after a run of new contracts for other players.

Manchester City have been linked with a potential swoop for Everton midfielder Ross Barkley.

City have reportedly identified him as a long term replacement for current midfield star Yaya Toure.

Barkley carries an apparent price tag of around £50 million, which would make him one of the most expensive Premier League players in history.

Jamie Redknapp says Frank Lampard would have been the happiest man in the dressing room after his goal against Chelsea.

The Blues legend came off the bench to grab the equaliser for City in the 1-1 draw against his old team.

“Don't be fooled by the non-celebration. Frank Lampard will have been the happiest man in the dressing room after scoring that goal,” said Redknapp.
