Man City in for Sporting Lisbon's Moutinho

Manchester City are chasing Sporting Lisbon midfielder Joao Moutinho.

The Observer says a graduate of Sporting's renowned academy programme, Moutinho can play anywhere in the centre of midfield and would provide a more mobile alternative to Dietmar Hamann.

There is a £17.5 million buy-out clause on Moutinho's contract, but Sporting would be prepared to negotiate that figure down.
