Well two papers today are saying Manchester City are now expected to put in an improved bid for James Milner.
The Times says that City will improve on their £20million in the next week or so.
The Telegraph are also sure they will return to 'lure' Milner to Manchester.
They say that Roberto Mancini is still keen on Milner ... and I quote... 'despite Milner's unremarkable World Cup campaign with England'.
I thought he was one of only a few players to come out of the campaign with any credit at all?
With Villa still wanting the £30million sort of fee, this report says that Man City will now wait for Milner and his agent to signal their intent. I assume this means they want him to hand in a transfer request? They want him in time for their USA pre-season tour on July 12 (I'll be at that in New York, I hope Milner isn't!)
Other whispers still suggest it will be Manchester he goes, but the United side as opposed to the City!
Meanwhile The Birmingham Mail has linked us again with Wigan Athletic's Columbian striker Hugo Rodallega.
He has been linked before (Wigan's £10million rated striker Hugo Rodallega. Click Here) and the Mail says that Villa will step up their interest after Wigan signed Mauro Boselli.
As mentioned on Vital the other day, John Carew is set for talks with Villa about a new contract: (Carew Contract Talks) but even so, Villa are desperate for a proven goalscorer with massive question marks over Emile Heskey's future at Villa (linked to Stoke).
Villa apparently will have to compete for the signing of South Korea defender Cho Yong-hyung, with Fulham and Newcastle United also interested. The 26-year-old who plays for K-League club Jeju United, is on the transfer list and according to his agent, 'Aston Villa and a few other European clubs have shown interest in Cho. I can confirm that he is on their transfer list and I expect the official deal will be made after the World Cup.'
