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

Could Aleks Kolarov be on his bike? The Turkish press should always be taken with a pinch of salt but they believe that the long-serving Serbian could be heading to Beşiktaş.

Although the expectation in the Spanish and German press is that City will land Leroy Sané this summer, the Blues must be wary of rival interest – and it would certainly be a blow if United landed him. City are in pole position, despite United entering the race, it has been reported.

It’s been reported as a probability for a while, but now transfer guru Di Marzio believes Mikel Arteta is set to become assistant manager to his pal Pep Guardiola at City.

City’s reported interest Juventus right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner, which broke yesterday, had the feel a throwaway transfer rumour that would soon be forgotten about. New information from Juventus-linked newspaper Tuttosport, however, has suggested the interest is not only real, but a bid could be imminent.

Joe Hart and Raheem Sterling were both scapegoats in England’s dramatic win over Wales today, while the likes of Harry Kane escaped without much criticism after subpar performances. Joe was at fault for not saving Gareth Bale’s free kick, though, and made a true Joe Hart comment after the game.
