City to pull out of Dzeko move.

Man City may abort their proposed move for Bosnian striker Edin Dzeko, unless Wolfsburg lower their demands and reduce their asking price from £45m. City boss Roberto Mancini rates the Wolfsburg frontman highly, but the club regard Wolfsburg’s demands as exorbitant and are refusing to budge, reports the Guardian. City have been in similar situations with transfers, cancelling plans for Benfica’s David Luiz and ready to pull the plug on the James Milner deal.

Robinho to Milan.

Manchester City forward Robinho is a potential acquisition for Italian giants Milan, according to the Guardian. Robinho has a month left on his loan deal at Brazilian club Santos, but they are not able to fund a deal. If fellow Brazilian Ronaldinho leaves Milan for Flamengo, the Italian club are keen to sign the 26 year old as a replacement.

Adebayor wants Champions League.

Emmanuel Adebayor has warned Chelsea and Manchester United that Manchester City will be serious title contenders next season. “Fifth place last season was OK, but we want to do better than that this time and we’re looking for the top three”, Adebayor told the Mirror<7i>. The Eastlands club have spent £60m on Yaya Toure, David Silva and Jerome Boateng and Adebayor hopes that these signings, twinned with a good start to the season against Tottenham and Liverpool, will help them push for the title.
