Man City to hijack Chelsea bid for Luiz or land Van der Wiel

Manager Roberto Mancini is keen to reinforce an increasingly vulnerable rearguard that has conceded eight goals in four games. UK understands that City are closely monitoring the situations of long-term targets Luiz and Van der Wiel.

“Mancini isn’t finished this month,” a City source told UK. “City have been watching Luiz for a year and have remained in regular contact with his representatives. They are also interested in Van der Wiel and are considering a last-minute deal.”

The story is too old to be commented.
