Manchester City are keeping close tabs on Danny Sturridge's situation at Chelsea. The Daily Star Sunday says Sturridge, 22 lost his place in the starting line-up last season and his chances of regaining it have not been helped by the signings of German ace Marko Marin and now Belgium star Eden Hazard.

If Sturridge decides he has to move on, Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini will sit up and take note.
