Man City Etihad

A round up of news stories this morning related to Manchester City.

The Daily Express claims Chelsea are planning a £40 million offer for former Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

The paper claims the Frenchman is also a target for Manchester United and Manchester City, but suggests he forms part of Jose Mourinho’s plans for next season.

ESPN claims City are also chasing a deal for Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus.

The German midfielder has been tipped to leave the Bundesliga at some point this year, with City emerging as one of the sides interested in him.

The Daily Express has previously claimed that he would cost around £20 million.

BT Sport claims there are doubts over the fitness of Manchester City midfielder Frank Lampard.

Lampard was withdrawn during the early stages of a friendly game against Hamburg in Abu Dhabi.

BT Sport claims there were no clear signs of a problem early on during the match.
