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

Tomorrow, Manchester City line up against Paris Saint Germain in the Champions League quarter final, and naturally, a fair amount of news surrounds the game…

First up, is the news that Joe Hart is “50/50” to play a part in the action, take from that what you will though, you know what City are like:

However, Manuel Pellegrini later confirmed in his press conference, that Joe Hart is fit to start between the posts on Wednesday night, but again, take that how you will – this is a man that has been unaware of his players actually being injured in the past:

There’s quite a large amount of news on the injury front, including comments from Lauren Blanc about which players he won’t have for selection, but luckily Lloyd has covered that, so I don’t really have to – that can be found here.

In other PSG related news, Mangala has insisted that Ibrahimovic and Cavani don’t scare him – however, the thought of Mangala sprawling after them might well scare a few City fans. Oh well, as long as Mangala isn’t scared:

How are you feeling ahead of the game tomorrow? It looks like City fans are torn between the result, with a City win just edging it (at the time of writing).

Moving onto transfer news, it’s of course Yaya Toure who is hitting the headlines, who may or may not be leaving the club in the summer:

It has, however, emerged that he will turn down a move to Inter Milan (according to The Mirror), with the midfielder opting to move to a Premier League club:

In other transfer news, Manchester City have allegedly enquired about the availability of Miralem Pjanic, with the potential fee being in the region of £28 million:

Just recently, quotes have emerged from Kevin De Bruyne, who has mentioned that talks did happen between his camp and PSG – and the Belgian international has insisted that he is happy with his personal choice:

And if that wasn’t enough PSG related talk, why not get into the mood a bit more with City Watch’s match preview?

Unfortunately, we have to end today’s round up on a particularly sad note, with the news that Cyril Mintz has passed away. You will never be forgotten, Cyril, you have gone down as a Manchester City legend – may you rest in peace. The thoughts from City Watch are with Cyril’s family and friends at this time, and long may his memory continue:
