Former Roma loanee Simon Kjaer could reject a return to Italy in favour of joining Manchester City, claim reports.
Kjaer spent last season on loan at the Stadio Olimpico but a permanent deal didn’t follow, leading to the likes of Milan and Fiorentina both reportedly considering a move this summer.
However, they could be beaten by Roberto Mancini’s City, who are considering Kjaer if they cannot complete a deal for first-choice target Daniel Agger of Liverpool.
The young Dane was thought to be certain to leave Wolfsburg permanently due to his fractious relationship with Coach Felix Magath.
However, with reports suggesting that the pair have now patched up their differences, the player’s departure has become more complex.
Lille and Malaga are also reportedly in the running for the defender’s signature too.
