Transfer News Today: Galatasaray Preparing Shock Terry Bid


Galatasaray are in for Terry, Dortmund want Dzeko and City told to stump up €20million for Malaga keeper...

Expressed an interest


Borussia Dortmund have identified Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko as the man they want to replace Robert Lewandowski, who looks increasingly likely to depart Signal Iduna Park in January.

Why it will happen: Dzeko is looking for regular first-team football, and he's more likely to get that at Dortmund than City, where Aguero and Negredo have established themselves as the first choice partnership.

Why it won't happen: City will not be willing to let him go unless a) the price is right and b) they have a suitable replacement.

 

Tabloid speculation

Galatasaray want to prise former England captain John Terry away from Chelsea in January. The Turkish club are willing to match his current wages of £150,000-a-week and this move would provide JT with opportunity to work with former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini.

Why it will happen: Terry is reaching the end of his career and may fancy a sojourn in the sun with former Chelsea teammate Didier Drogba.

Why it won't happen: Terry is close to Jose Mourinho and will feel he can captain Chelsea to another Premier League or even the Champions League under Mourinho.

 

 

In talks

Manchester City have been told they'll have to stump up €20million if they want to sign Malaga goalkeeper Willy Caballero in January.

Why it will happen: City are desperate to bolster their goalkeeping options given the poor form of Joe Hart, and Pellegrini knows Caballero well.

Why it won't happen: €20million is poor value for a 32-year-old goalkeeper with no international experience and limited experience in Europe's top leagues.
