Manchester City fans are looking up from their pints here in the Football Transfer Tavern, as the Daily Mail claim that the club have a defender in mind when it comes to strengthening the squad in the summer.
The club have seen their European hopes go down the drain thanks to one of their centre backs, and the others – Vincent Kompany aside – are not that much better.
Now Manuel Pellegrini has turned his attentions to a Liverpool player – and as our landlord notes, City fans do not need to panic, it is not Kolo Toure!
The club are keen on landing Martin Skrtel, who is at the minute committed to the Reds, but should they fail to get into the Champions League next term, the Slovakian is believed to be willing to consider his future.
This summer, Brendan Rodgers and his men could well face a huge fight to hold onto a couple of their star players, with Luis Suarez also in high demand.
With our Reds fans in the tavern hoping that their side are finally on the up and about to challenge for titles again, they note that losing key players would not exactly be ideal, and we have to agree with them.
How likely are City to get their hands on Reds tough guy Skrtel? Let us know your thoughts below.
