Etihad Stadium side chase Wolfsburg attacker.
The Daily Star claim that Man City are ‘closing in’ on Wolfsburg assist making machine Kevin de Bruyne, with the Bundesliga side apparently demanding £40m for the Belgian.

The 23 year old has racked up a dozen Bundesliga assists this term, comfortably more than any other player, and has helped his side to second in the table and one can see why Manuel Pellegrini would take an interest in the former Blues star.
Arguably de Bruyne was never given a fair crack of the whip at Stamford Bridge and could perhaps harbour hopes of a move back to the English top tier.
Wolfsburg paid Chelsea £17m but want to more than double their outlay and the presence of fellow countryman Vincent Kompany could perhaps aid Man City’s push for the flair player.
City may elect to use striker Edin Dzeko, who is a former Wolsburg player, as bait in pursuit of de Bruyne.
