Time to catch up on today’s news – here’s your City Summary:

I’m not even sure if we can class this as news anymore, but the press insist on reporting it, so we will too. BILD report that progress has been made in City’s pursuit of Leroy Sané.

English outlets, such as The Guardian and The Telegraph, have endorsed this claim, whilst also suggesting that City are also very close to the signings of South American wonderkids, Marlos Moreno and Gabriel Jesus.

In other news, the Pablo Zabaleta transfer saga may yet take another twist as Roma, who looked to have withdrawn from talks with the Argentinian, could return with another offer.

According to Tuttosport, one move which looks to be dead in the water is City’s pursuit of Leonardo Bonucci. They claim that the Italian has unfortunately chosen to stay at Juventus.

Meanwhile, James Cooper of Sky Sports News offers an update on the progress of the current crop of players, under Pep Guardiola.

Club legend, Mike Summerbee, appears to be very impressed with our new manager.

Summerbee may also have been making a reference to Guardiola’s desire to get the player’s fitness up to optimum level, something which Manuel Pellegrini struggled with.

Gael Clichy, having already praised Guardiola in the press last week, has given the fans an indication of what Pep is demanding from his new players.

Ending today’s ‘City Summary’ on a positive note, it appears that Thursday’s friendly with Borussia Dortmund is likely to go ahead, despite warnings of bad weather.

That’s it for today. Keep your eyes peeled on @City_Watch and the site, day and night, as we work to deliver the latest City news, views, and other high-quality content.
