Manchester City are ready to make the most of the January transfer window. They’re hoping that a certain Italian striker will be willing to kiss his home country goodbye for the chance to play for a legitimate contender!
Manchester City are planning a January bid for Sampdoria striker Antonio Cassano.
Gazzetta dello Sport says Samp’s sudden slide this season hasn’t gone unnoticed by City chiefs, who are convinced they can tempt Cassano to leave Genoa in midseason.

Cassano, who was left off Marcello Lippi’s squad for the upcoming qualifier, seems to be warming to the idea of moving north to Manchester. With City currently looking at a host of potential January targets, Cassano would prove to be a fantastic buy. And with Samp currently struggling in Seria A, the time couldn’t be better for Hughes and his new pocketbook.
What do City supporters think about a move for Cassano?
