Milner close to City

England ace, James Milner was one of top priorites this summer for Man City. They already sent an offer (£20m) to Aston Villa, but Villa rejected the offer, saying he is not for sale.

But it looks like, the things have changed now.  With Balotelli talks still ongoing we have to see if City will now go for Milner instead of Balotelli, for whom Inter is asking more than £30m, or maybe try to get them both.

But one thing is clear, Mancini loves Milner as a player. “Milner is a good player, but today he is an Aston Villa player.” “If we have this chance [to sign Milner] I think we can take him, but we must wait now.”, said Mancini according to Sky news.
