Man City locked in Real Madrid talks for Pepe

Manchester City are determined to prise Pepe from Real Madrid.

The Daily Star says City boss Manuel Pellegrini wants to sign the Portugal star but has seen a £16m bid rejected.

Real bosses are standing firm over the centre-back and have told Pellegrini to up his offer to £24m.

Now the two clubs have reached a stand-off because City are not willing to meet the asking price for someone who is 30.
