United in for Bundesliga pair Draxler and Reus, Chelsea to be offered Mario Mandzukic and Cole to Real Madrid...
MANCINI WANTS TERRY
Interesting line in The Sun.
Apparently Galatasaray manager Roberto Mancini wants John Terry to move to Turkey.
Terry's Chelsea contract expires next year, so he is free to sign a pre-contract with one of them foreign clubs in January.
And they will offer him a big fat juicy contract to sign, although it's rather doubtful that he will actually leave Chelsea, we would think.
Or would he?
MALAGA WON'T SELL WILLY
The theory with some is that Manuel Pellegrini is edging Joe Hart out so he can bring in his old pal Willy Caballero, but not if Malaga have anything to do with it.
Midfielder Sergi Darder has also been linked with a move away, frequently with Spurs, but Malaga director general Vicente Casado has put his foot firmly down.
"We will not sell Willy Caballero or Sergi Darder in the January market," Casado told radio station Cadena Ser.
"He (Caballero) will not leave unless someone pays his release clause and he is in agreement. At the moment we are focused on building the squad."
CITY NEED ANOTHER DEFENDER
Manchester City's reliance on Vincent Kompany can be pretty embarrassing, and according to The Daily Mail they are looking at another defender to fill in for/back him up.
The paper reports: 'It is understood that City will not look to buy a new goalkeeper, despite Joe Hart's ongoing problems, but they are in the market for a central defender after Kompany's injuries have turned out to be more serious than expected.'
No word or indeed any speculation on who that defender might be, mind.
DORTMUND WANT DZEKO
More on City from the Mail now, and they report that Borussia Dortmund are sniffing around Edin Dzeko.
Dortmund need a replacement for Roberto Lewandowski, and Dzeko is one of the options, according to the paper.
The Mail claims Dortmund are 'reluctant to spend over £15million which is below City's valuation', but as Dortmund need a new striker, they might be persuaded.
