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

It finally looks as if City are reaching the business end of the window, after plenty of speculation in the past few months.

Marlos Moreno has given us his reasons for joining The Blues, whilst his agent has high hopes for him at the club.

Despite claims made by The Mail that the deal for John Stones is at a ‘stalemate’, Rory Smith of The Times is confident that the deal will be completed in the coming days.

However, City have seemingly briefed the press that they will not be held to ransom over Stones, with the Guardian and Telegraph reporting that Txiki does not want to bid more than £40 million. Everton are said to value Stones at £50 million.

Gabriel Jesus’ transfer is rumoured to be complete, although we may have to wait until after The Olympics for an official announcement.

Globo Esporte also confirm that Jesus rejected moves from Barcelona and Manchester United in favour of working with Pep Guardiola at City.

The long-awaited transfer of Leroy Sané from Schalke to Manchester City is now in its final stages, according to a journalist from Sky Germany.

According to The Telegraph, deals for Sané and Jesus could be wrapped up by the time City play Arsenal, next week.

There were also plenty of rumours regarding some much needed outgoings today, with an overall assessment from The Telegraph.

Leggo endorse The Telegraph’s claim by reporting that Roma are interested in a move for Samir Nasri.

Wilfried Bony was also linked with a move away, with managerless Hull City wanting to take the Ivorian on loan. Manchester City are said to prefer a permanent transfer.

Jason Denayer is happy at the club according to his former manager at Galatasaray, but City may yet decide to sell the Belgian youngster. Arsenal are said to be keeping tabs on his situation.

One man who looks to be staying in Manchester, for the time being at least, is Aleksandar Kolarov. His move to Besiktas broke down and the Turkish club have signed Adriano from Barcelona, who is also primarily a left-back.

This may spell bad news for fellow left-back, Angeliño. The explosive Spaniard has impressed in pre-season, but is still optimistic about his chances in the coming year.

To end today’s City Summary, we look back on this day in 2009, when City completed a move for Kolo Touré. He made 82 appearances before leaving the club in 2013 for Liverpool. Good luck at Celtic, Kolo!
