Man City ready to turn to Atletico Madrid striker Forlan

Atletico Madrid striker Diego Forlan is in the sights of Manchester City.

The People says City boss Roberto Mancini will move to Forlan if cannot prise Fernando Torres away from Liverpool.

City know they face an uphill task trying to take Torres to a club that is not playing Champions League football next season.

So they will move on quickly if their bid for Torres fails, confident they can do a deal with Atletico Madrid for Forlan at around £20 million.

City want two new front men, with Inter Milan's Mario Balotelli the other target, to give them a formidable strikeforce and the chance of a title chase.
