Blues are told Argentinian keeper will cost them £17 million, while teenage central defender is valued at £34m.
La Liga outfit Malaga have told Premier League big boys Manchester City that they have no chance whatsoever of signing either goalkeeper Willy Caballero or defender Sergi Darder when the winter transfer window opens again for business at the turn of the year, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.
The big spenders from the north west are known to currently be on the lookout for both a new shot stopper and a centre back to bring to Eastlands in the new year, with head coach Manuel Pellegrini having lost patience in goal with current No 1 Joe Hart.
Meanwhile, the experienced Chilean manager has also just suffered a new injury setback regarding key captain Vincent Kompany after the Belgium international picked up yet another problem in training, with the centre back now likely to be out of action until January at the very earliest.
However, Pellegrini’s hopes of returning to Southern Spain in January to be able to lure former players Caballero and Darder to Eastlands now appear over after his former club confirmed that neither target was available for sale.
“We will not sell Caballero or Darder. We’re just focused on building,” Malaga’s general manager Vicente Casado told Spanish radio station Cadena Ser.
