City prepare bid for Ramirez

Manchester City will make a summer bid for Bologna starlet Gaston Ramirez, reports in Italy are suggesting.

The 21-year-old fantasista is being linked with an exit despite the fact that he signed a new contract until 2016 last November.

According to stories on Monday, the Stadio Dall’Ara outfit are looking for around €15m for the player – but they are hoping a biding war could see that figure increase.

The attacking midfielder was signed by Bologna from Penarol in the summer of 2010.

Italian clubs such as Roma, Juventus, Fiorentina and Udinese showed an interest in him before the start of the present campaign.
