Bersant Celina and Pablo Maffeo linked with loan moves
Samir Nasri is determined to fight for his Manchester City future, according to Goal.com. The French midfielder has missed the majority of the season through injury, and is likely to be excluded from City's Champions League squad at the end of the month. The Blues have been linked with a summer move for Leroy Sane, but Nasri has no plans to leave with his contract not due to expire until 2019.
Bersant Celina, who made his senior debut on Saturday during the 3-0 victory at Carrow Road, is wanted on loan until the end of the season by Celtic. The Daily Record claim that Ronny Deila and John Collins met with City officials last week. Fellow EDS team mate Pablo Maffeo, meanwhile, has been linked with a loan move to Spanish side Girona, according to RAC1.
SportFootMagazine claim that Kevin De Bruyne had agreed terms with Bayern Munich before his move to England, but that Munich were unwilling to match Wolfsburg's asking price. The article quotes De Bruyne's agent, Patrick De Koster, who is quick to stresss that De Bruyne is settled in England. "In the end City won the race and Kevin is super happy with his move," said De Koster. "He adapted fast on and off the pitch."
