Manchester City are looking to sign Udinese winger Alexis Sanchez and Milan midfielder Clarence Seedorf, according to reports in England.
The Daily Mail understands City have been alerted to the fact that Seedorf's contract is due to expire this summer and Milan have yet to get the former Holland international to renew.
Seedorf is known to have an offer from Brazilian club Corinthians, but will wait to see what Milan propose before making a final decision.
As for Sanchez, the Daily Telegraph claims that City met with the 22-year-old Chile international's agents last week and that talks went well.
City face competition from Chelsea, Manchester United and Inter for Sanchez who has lit up Serie A this season with some fine performances.
Sheikh Mansour is prepared to write a cheque for €50m to tempt Udinese into selling Sanchez.
The deal could be bankrolled by the sales of Emmanuel Adebayor to Real Madrid and possibly Mario Balotelli to Milan.
