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

We start today with some injury news, with Pellegrini confirming today that Vincent Kompany will miss City’s fixture with West Brom on Saturday:

Rumour has it that Txiki Begiristain attended the Bilbao vs Sevilla game, but apparently it wasn’t anything to do with Aymeric Laporte, who missed that game through injury.

Or was it? Reports later in the day suggest that Begiristain was in fact in attendance regarding a move for Laporte, with rumours suggesting he was there to talk about the deal:

City vs PSG has somewhat taken over these City Summary’s in the last few days, so why leave it there? Today brought about news that Pastore and Verrati could feature on Tuesday, as well as confirmation that Laurent Blanc has left an array of players out of the squad list for their game tomorrow:

ESPN report that Manchester City are looking at reviewing their pricing structure for Champions League games, as a result of the large backlash felt on revealing £60 tickets for the quarter final. This brought about some resistance from fans, including an open letter from City Watch, and it’s something that might have caught the attention of the club:

Saying that, City’s intense marketing efforts this week can be reduced slightly, as a result of Wednesday’s draw.

Meanwhile, Jan Kirchhoff has got us even more excited about the thought of Pep Guardiola taking over next season, hinting that the Catalan will change the league:

It has also emerged tonight that Kevin De Bruyne is a fan of those who persist – suggesting that City’s behind the scenes staff gave him a call every day. So, lads, if a girl is only half keen on you, don’t give up… it’s worth giving them a ring every day!

Talking about De Bruyne, here’s an interesting stat for you… did his injury have a major impact on the title race?

And whilst we’re on the topic of Belgium (kinda), we’ll finish it with Manuel Pellegrini, the charming man, who today confirmed that he is “not concerned about their opinion”.

That’s our round-up of today’s news folks, however remember that round-the-clock coverage will continue throughout the night on @City_Watch – we’ll make sure we keep you up-to-date!
