Manchester City owner Sheik Mansour remains confident of making a big-name signing in January.

The Daily Mail says despite City's poor league position and their FA Cup defeat at home to Nottingham Forest on Saturday, the Sheik and his advisors have drawn up a list of four world stars which - amazingly - includes Chelsea defender and England captain John Terry.

It is understood that Sheik Mansour has given his support to the beleaguered Hughes' plans to bolster his failing squad with the pragmatic signings of Wayne Bridge, Roque Santa Cruz, Scott Parker, Craig Bellamy and Kolo Toure.

But he is also intent on capturing either Terry, Valencia's David Villa, Barcelona's Lionel Messi or Milan's Kaka before trading closes for the season on February 2.
