Man City not giving up signing Real Madrid defender Pepe

Manchester City are locked in Real Madrid talks over defender Pepe.

The Daily Star Sunday says Pepe is available at £30m but City will not pay that for the defender, 30.

The Premier League's biggest spenders in this transfer window are prepared to pay £22m.

New boss Manuel Pellegrini wants more Champions League know-how in his squad after City's failure in the competition in the last two seasons.
