They have just sacked their manager and have failed to win even a single trophy this season and things could get worse yet for Manchester City fans here at the Football Transfer Tavern as it is claimed by Fantix that the club are set to face a raid for one of their star players.
French side Monaco who of course have just been promoted to Ligue 1 have just landed much coveted Porto pair Joao Moutinho and James Rodriguez in a multi-million dual deal and a £26 million swoop for Manchester City skipper Vincent Kompany who has also been interesting Barcelona is now in the pipeline.
L’Equipe are reporting that the initial rumours of interest in the forward were certainly of substance, and the defender has shot to the top of the wanted list at the mega wealthy Stade Louis II-based club.
As one of our punters quips, it was only last week we were first considering this potential move and although a move to Monaco may still prove unlikely we all know money talks and City are certainly taking this latest link seriously. Kompany is thought to be settled in Manchester but with the likes of Barcelona casting an eye over the player it seems that this story will roll on and on as the summer progresses.
