City Summary – January 26: Laporte set for City medical, pre-Cardiff injury news, Kimpembe was a target

Catch up on all of today’s Manchester City news with our City Summary!

It was a day of more exciting Aymeric Laporte updates, with news that he’ll be in Manchester for a medical early next week from reliable local sources.

The exact day of his medical – Monday or Tuesday – is unclear, with Gianluca Di Marzio saying it’ll be Tuesday, while Bilbao sources say Monday.

Athletic Bilbao left the 23-year-old out of their matchday squad, the greatest hint yet that a deal is very close.

In his pre-Cardiff press conference, Pep Guardiola refused to say much about Laporte or another City target, Fred.

Good news on the injury front from Pep, with Walker fine after taking a knock against Bristol City and no other fresh concerns.

How will Cardiff deal with the Shark Team on Sunday? Neil Warnock has been preparing his side quite uniquely…

Before Laporte, City made an approach for highly-rated PSG talent Presnel Kimpembe, but he had no interest in leaving his boyhood club in January.

Any Mancunians fancy seeing the likes of Messi and Dybala at the Etihad in March? You may have the chance with City’s stadium set to host an Argentina vs. Italy prestige friendly. A short trip for Aguero and Otamendi…

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.
