Man City ready to move for Cudicini

City had Newcastle goalkeeper Shay Given as their first-choice but are not prepared to pay the Toon’s £11million asking price.

The Eastlands side have only offered less than £5million for the 32-year-old keeper, according to News of the World.

Cudicini would be a cheaper alternative than Given and Juventus keeper Gianluigi Buffon, who they have also been linked with.
