Manchester City have been linked with a move for Declan Rice, who has been advised to move to the Etihad over rivals United as Pedro Porro could return to the club
The January transfer window could bring about a lot of activity at the Etihad Stadium.
Pep Guardiola’s side sits in second place in the Premier League table following their 3-0 victory over lacklustre Everton on Sunday.
Raheem Sterling scored his first Premier League goal since August before Rodri added a stunning second and Bernardo Silva a late third as Pep Guardiola’s side responded to convincing victories by title rivals Chelsea and Liverpool on Saturday with a dominant display of their own.
But as City continue to battle for silverware on all fronts, reinforcements may be needed while a number of players have been linked with moves away from the club.
January could also see the return of a promising young player who had been sent out on loan for the season, if Champions League results don’t go the right way.
Here are all the latest Man City transfer rumours.

Loan star could return
Pedro Porro could be sent back to Man City despite being on loan at Sporting Lisbon – if the Portuguese side don’t qualify for the next round of the Champions League this week, it is reported.
According to O Jogo, the Portuguese giants are financially unable to pay the reported £7.1 m fee to make the fullback’s move permanent.
It makes the match worth a lot for Sporting, with Real Madrid said to be keeping an eye on his development as they consider making a bid for him in the future.
Rice told to snub United
Declan Rice has been told to snub Manchester United and join Manchester City by a former United player.
Brazilian midfielder Kleberson believes the West Ham and England star would be better served moving to the blue half of Manchester when he eventually leaves the Hammers.
Kleberson told Paddy Power Rice’s playing style would fit in better at City under Pep Guardiola.
The former United player said: “It would be good to see Declan Rice play for Manchester City as they base their play around keeping the ball for long periods of time, which is something that Declan Rice likes to do.”
Sterling ‘asks for move’
Raheem Sterling has asked the club to enter negotiations with Barcelona in order for him to leave City.
Mundo Deportivo [via Sport Witness] report that Sterling has informed Pep Guardiola he would ‘like to sign’ for the Catalan club in the next window.
It is reported that the forward wants City to ‘facilitate’ the move, but the ‘problem’ with any potential switch could be the salary limit imposed by La Liga.
