Etihad Stadium side chase Juventus and Fiorentina stars.
After a fairly lacklustre start to the current campaign Man City are plotting moves to improve their squad with Manuel Pellegrini targeting two Serie A stars according to the Manchester Evening News.
Fiorentina attacker Juan Cuadrado has been the subject of a great deal of interest over the past six months and despite signing a new contract it appears the Colombian is still a much sought after target.
The 26 year old’s new deal includes a tempting €35m (£28m) buyout clause which is clearly well within Man City’s seemingly limitless budget.
This source believes Jesus Navas’s inconsistent displays and Samir Nasri and David Silva’s preference to fill a central role could lead to a move for Cuadrado.
City’s second move is a tad harder to fathom.
Pellegrini is apparently keen on Juventus right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner and whilst the Swiss international will be available on a free transfer next summer one has to wonder why Man City would covet the 29 year old defender.
City already have Pablo Zabaleta and Bacary Sagna, as well as Micah Richards out on loan, so what would be the purpose of signing another right-back?
