Man City look to win battle for South American star

Manchester City will resist interest from La Liga rivals Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid in defender Pablo Zabaleta

The Argentina international, who was named in last season’s Premier League team of the year, carried his consistently-excellent form into this campaign with trademark raids up and down the right channel.

A source close to City told FDN that scouts from title challengers Real and Atletico have been keeping tabs on Zabaleta, although both clubs are yet to make official contact regarding a potential offer.

If they do attempt to enter into a dialogue over the acquisition of the right-back, they will be told in no uncertain terms that he remains a vital part of Manuel Pellegrini’s team and is key to the Blues’ ambitions, according to the source. (SportsDirectNews)

Surely he wont leave the club?
