Manchester City media round-up: Paper claims Kompany's future is in doubt

Manchester City Etihad

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

The Daily Star claims the future of Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany is in doubt.

The Belgian was dropped after a fallout with a teammate during the defeat at Anfield earlier this season.

The paper claims Manuel Pellegrini needs to judge his frame of mind before drafting him back into the team.

The Daily Star has reported that former Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini is keen on a deal for Stevan Jovetic.

Jovetic has struggled for regular game time under Manuel Pellegrini this season and could be allowed to move on at the end of the season.

The Star reports that Inter will make an offer of around £15 million to try and force the deal through.

Manchester City midfielder Frank Lampard has been quoted by the Daily Express suggesting David Silva is as good as Chelsea’s Eden Hazard.

Lampard is well placed to offer judgement on the dynamic midfield men having played for both clubs.

Lampard says Silva is one of the best players he’s ever played with, despite not having completed a full season with City.

“I’d put him right in the top bracket of the best players I’ve played with in my career. I’ve been fortunate enough to play alongside players like Gianfranco Zola, Arjen Robben and Eden Hazard among others and he’s completely up there with the best,” he said.
