Aguero out of Champions League, Silva heading for Rome

Manchester City will have to plan without Sergio Aguero as they look to win the Champions League.

Aguero has not lost hope of being fit in time to play but Pep Guardiola will have to plan without him with Gabriel Jesus as the main striker.

Jesus has started all but one match since Aguero got injured – and after failing to score in his first six appearances since the lockdown he has scored five goals in his last seven starts – including the winner against Real Madrid last week.

And while the papers continue to link City to many different potential signings, there are two all but confirmed departures to report.

Once the season ends after the champions league, Claudio Bravo will be on his way to join former City Manager Manuel Pellegrini at Real Betis.

Meanwhile Lazio are completing the final details before making the signing of David Silva official. The Spanish midfielder is reported to be signing a three-year deal with the Serie A club within the coming days. On behalf of City fans everywhere, we thank you.

West Ham United tracking Sporting wide man Jovane Cabral

Portuguese news outlet A Bola say that the Hammers are keen on signing the 22-year-old, who has impressed this season for Sporting.

The report claims that West Ham have already touched base with certain representatives over Cabral’s capture, with manager David Moyes no doubt looking to strengthen his side after narrowly avoiding Premier League relegation this season.

It’s believed Sporting are willing to let Cabral go for around €20m, which remains affordable for West Ham despite concerns over coronavirus-impacted finances.

Manchester City to sell Pedro Porro

The defender – who hasn’t played a single game for City’s first team – arrived at the Etihad from Spanish side Girona last summer for €12m.

After spending the 2019/20 season on loan in La Liga at Real Valladolid, it now appears that the 20-year-old could be on his way out of Manchester City permanently if Portuguese side Sporting Lisbon activate his €8.5m release clause.

According to Portuguese outlet Record, City and Sporting enjoy a healthy relationship and the two sides have reached a ‘total agreement’ for the player on a two-year loan deal with an option to buy, despite him not having played a single competitive match for Pep Guardiola’s side.
