RUMOURS: Man City plotting Badstuber bid

Pep Guardiola is ready to raid the ranks of former club Bayern Munich in January for the services of an experienced international defender

Bayern Munich defender Holger Badstuber is a January transfer target for Manchester City, according to ESPN FC.

Pep Guardiola is expected to bring in reinforcements at the back now that the window of opportunity has re-opened.

City have been breached 21 times in 19 Premier League fixtures this season, with no side in the top six having conceded more.

Experienced Germany international Badstuber is a player well known to Guardiola from his time in charge at the Allianz Arena, and the 27-year-old could be available for a cut-price fee as he is due to be out of contract in the summer.
