Manchester City morning news: Liverpool target Milner, Bony deal 'in days'

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

James Milner is reportedly a key January transfer target for Liverpool.

The Times claims the Reds will target the Liverpool international, who was being tipped to sign a new deal at the Etihad.

Milner, the ultimate utility man, could still sign a new contract at the Etihad with no formal offer in sight from Brendan Rodgers’ club.

Wilfried Bony’s agent has backed the striker to move to Manchester City in the coming days.

City have been linked with a £30 million move as they look to bolster their attacking options over the second half of the season.

“We are in talks and we hope it will happen. There are rumours about other teams, but City are the only ones interested. There are a few minor hold-ups over money, but we hope things will be sorted in the next few days,” Francis Kacou told Sky Sports.

Inter Milan are reportedly interested in doing a deal for Scott Sinclair.

The 25-year-old winger has struggled to make an impact at the club following a high profile move from Swansea City.

Aston Villa are also thought to be interested in him, but are reportedly put off by his price tag.
