City Summary – August 29: Hart flying to Italy, Mangala and Bony to leave, Sevilla want Nasri

manchester city summary

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

Sergio Aguero has been the topic of discussion after his alleged elbow against West Ham yesterday and it has emerged today that he didn’t travel to Buenos Aires as a result of an injury sustained against the Hammers:

City are praying that Aguero will escape retrospective action, but his injury could keep him out of the Manchester derby:

Claudio Bravo will also play no part in the World Cup qualifiers after he withdrew from the squad for personal reasons:

Samir Nasri’s move to Besiktas has hit a stumbling block after Sevilla entered the race to sign the City midfielder:

City have thus far struggled to get Wilfried Bony off the books this summer, however it looks like he could be on the way to Everton, Stoke or West Ham – the three clubs that have been consistently linked:

And Joe Hart’s immediate future is very close to being solved. The England goalkeeper has been given leave from the international training camp and is on the verge of a move to Italian club Torino:

The deal is heavily reliant on City’s fortunes. Torino will pay just £50,000 of Hart’s £140,000 per week wages, leaving City to foot a £90,000 weekly bill:

Something similar could well happen in order for Eliaquim Mangala to leave the club, and if he stays at City then it is unlikely he will get a place in the Premier League and Champions League squads:

Bruno Zuculini has completed a loan move to Rayo Vallecano, good luck Bruno!

And finally, Gabriel Jesus will take the number 9 shirt for Brazil’s World Cup qualifiers, a number that was previously assigned to footballing legend Ronaldo:
