Man City target Sevilla star

The Sun reports that Manuel Pellegrini was impressed by Banega’s performance at the Etihad last week in a match City won 2-1 against Sevilla.

Pellegrini is keen to bring in Banega, as it will provide him with an option in the midfield that is different from the strong athletic types that is currently at Eastlands.

The 27-year-old has previously been strongly linked with City’s rivals Manchester United.
