Luís Fabiano on City link

Thursday, November 27, 2008

Luís Fabiano's agent claims Manchester City will make a £25 million move for the Sevilla striker in January.

City look set to invest heavily during the transfer window as manager Mark Hughes has been told he can spend 'as much money as he likes' in January.

The likes of John Terry, Ashley Cole, Gianluigi Buffon, Kaká and Sergio Agüero have all been strongly linked with January moves to Eastlands and Fabiano seems a more likely purchase than some of those mentioned.

His contract with the La Liga club runs out in 2011, but Fabiano has a strained relationship with the club’s coach Manolo Jiménez.

The striker, who scored a hat-trick for Brazil against Portugal last week, left training on Tuesday early after a frank discussion with Jimenez.

"Manchester City have asked about Fabiano but that is not unique because they are just one of many," Fabiano's agent Jose Fuentes is quoted as saying in the Daily Star.

"The final decision lays with Sevilla and I still have to speak to the club's directors."

The club’s sporting director Ramón Rodríguez 'Monchi' admits that if they receive a massive offer in the New Year they will have to take a serious look at it.

He said: "We are calm at the moment because there are a lot of rumours about clubs interested in our players.

"We are not thinking about selling Luís Fabiano and have not received a concrete offer, but if one arrives then we will have to study the question."
