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

Manchester City face Stoke City at the Etihad Stadium tomorrow, and Samir Nasri is the only absentee in a side that Pellegrini insists will be full strength:

Talking about his likely strong team selection, Pellegrini notably said that big teams can’t choose one competition. Poor Manuel, he has obviously forgotten about how we got knocked out of the FA Cup this season:

Elsewhere, the father and agent of German defender Mats Hummels has been stoking a fire, suggesting that City would be a strong option for his son if the Blues were to come in for him:

Pep Guardiola was bizarrely asked his thoughts on the story, and quite rightly so responded with a short and dismissive answer:

Some of the big news however came from the Real Madrid camp, with news that Cristiano Ronaldo has suffered a muscle strain. It’s important not to get ahead of ourselves though, as the Manchester United 7-year-loanee is probably going to return for Tuesday and is being rested this weekend:

Some news on the young player front, as Emile Heskey’s son Reigan has joined his brother Jaden at City – the future is bright… let’s hope they don’t follow in the footsteps of Heskey after his peak:

Today also saw the reveal of agent fees from Premier League clubs during the period between October 2015 and February 2016, with City ranking the third highest, behind Liverpool and United:

There’s some contract news to talk about too, so congratulations to James Horsfield on signing a contract extension until June 2017:

Some more transfer news now, as Khaldoon Al Mubarak was spotted alongside Barack Obama. The Manchester City chairman was spotted in Riyadh, and is reportedly there to seal a 5 year contract for Barack Obama – who has been labelled the “next Martin Demichellis” – to join the City defence:

It’s always good to build a bit more excitement around Pep Guardiola, and it’s Thierry Henry’s turn to add his insight:

City fought back to earn a 1-1 draw in the first leg of the FA Youth Cup final against Chelsea, with Aaron Nemane scoring this cracker:
