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

We start today’s City Summary with the old chestnut that is Yaya Toure’s Manchester City future and the latest news is that Mancini’s Inter Milan are not interested in pursuing a move for the midfielder – although they’ll probably be interested again tomorrow:

However, a move for Yaya Toure could cost any interested parties around £11.5m – pretty steep for a 33-year-old, which perhaps is a representation of the job he may still be able to carry out:

Laporte this, Laporte that. It’s been a similar situation in the recent months as when your best gets a new partner, the news just doesn’t stop. The latest is that City are still chasing the young defender, despite the injury he sustained:

SPORT BILD have reported that Pep Guardiola wants a deal wrapped up for Ilkay Gundogan, despite his current knee dislocation:

Brahim Diaz – whose transfer to Barcelona stalled in 2011, before moving to City – has somewhat sparkled in this the Euro’s U17 tournament – and has been talking about his future and his idol:

According to Duncan Castles, City have turned their interest away from Paul Pogba, despite Juventus appearing willing to sell the French midfielder:

A deal that may well be on the cards though is a transfer for Benfica shot stopper Ederson Moraes, who matches the specification for a Pep Guardiola style of play:

If there was ever any proof that Nike have had our pants down with our current kit deal… City’s current deal is just a fifth of the sum about to be paid to Chelsea by the same company:

19-year-old Mathias Boassaerts today signed for KV Oostende, ending a four year stint in Manchester:

Some congratulations to give out tonight, the first of which go Billy O’Brien and Ellis Plummer who have signed new deals at the club, keeping them at the Etihad for the next year at least:

And perhaps a bigger congratulations should go to Jacob Davenport, who has tonight been named U18s Player of the Year, Scholar of the year and Players Player of the year – not bad, ey?

That’s it for today. Keep your eyes peeled on @City_Watch and the site, day and night, as we work to deliver the latest City news, views, and other high-quality content.
