Manchester City media round-up: Sterling and Guardiola tipped for summer moves

Manchester City Etihad

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

ESPN has reported that Manchester City are eyeing a new high profile player and a new manager this summer.

The player in question is Liverpool’s Raheem Sterling while the manager is reported to be Bayern Munich’s Pep Guardiola.

However, the same source reports that Guardiola has a year left to run on his current contract at the German club, which could be a stumbling block.

The Daily Mail has reported that the fee City would have to pay to do a deal for Sterling will be in the region of £50 million.

The paper claims that the Reds will demand a straight up cash fee over any deal, with City having the resources to pull off a move.

City are reportedly confident that they are leading the race to land the England international at the end of the season.

Arsenal legend Ian Wright has admitted in the Daily Star that he wouldn’t think twice about trying to sign Yaya Toure for Arsenal.

Toure has been one of the Premier League’s most consistent midfielders since he originally joined the club.

“Everyone is jumping on the bandwagon of writing him off, but he is 31 and I reckon he would be an absolute sensation at the Emirates for a couple of seasons,” he said.
