Man City in bid for Iraqi star Ali Adnan?
Manchester City are reportedly monitoring the progress of Iraq international left back Ali Adnan. The full back currently plays in Turkey for Caykur Rizespor.
The highly rated 20-year-old has attracted the interest of numerous top European sides but so far the Iraqi's club has told potential suitors Adnan is not for sale. However, with Man City ready to bid a hefty sum in January for the versatile defender, Rizespor are expected to let the player leave for the right price. Adnan should be able to receive a work permit to play in England having appeared more than 20 times for his country and Man City manager Manuel Pellegrini hopes to secure a deal for the player to provide competition for current first choice left defender Gael Clichy.
