According to Spanish paper Marca, Manchester City have lined up a €50M bid to acquire the services of Real Madrid’s Argentinean duo of Fernando Gago and Gonzalo Higuain. The pair were acquired in 2006 by the Madrid-based club for a combined cost of €33.5M and would provide the side a hefty profit should they accept the offer from football’s latest mega-rich team.

It is believed that Man City manager Roberto Mancini has earmarked the two as his prime targets for the summer, and has personally asked owner Sheikh Mansour Bin Zayed Al Nahyan to sign the pair in order to push their club to Premier League title contention next season.

Mancini had attempted to sign Gago in the January transfer window, and will be hoping to finally get his man in the summer. Higuain has been having disputes with his contract extension negotiations, and City are keen to capitalise on the situation.
