Manchester City are eyeing Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke. The Daily Star says with Mario Balotelli on his way to AC Milan, City boss Roberto Mancini will now step up his bid to land either Atletico Madrid's Falcao or Napoli's Edinson Cavani in the summer, while he could even make a shock bid to sign Aston Villa hotshot Christian Benteke before tomorrow's deadline.

Balotelli will have a medical at the San Siro before agreeing a four-year deal worth £3.4m a year to bring an end to his troubled spell at Manchester City.
