Manchester City could miss out on top target Edinson Cavani as the striker has hinted his preference is a move to Real Madrid.
The talented forward is set to depart Italian side Napoli this summer and is considered Manchester City's top target.
However, City face competition for his signature from Premier League rivals Chelsea and Spanish giants Real Madrid, and Uruguay international Cavani has indicated he would welcome a move to the Bernabeu.
He told El Partido de las 12: "I am very calm. Real Madrid are a beautiful team, every player dreams of playing there when he is a child.
"Those are things that they are talking from behind, as it will soon be seen. But officially nobody has talked with me."
Cavani has previously stressed he will not make a decision on his future until his commitments at the Confederations Cup with Uruguay are over.
Punters may wish to use their free bet to back City to secure the league title regardless of whether or not Cavani joins this summer as new boss Manuel Pellegrini will certainly make some big moves in the transfer market following his switch from Malaga.
City are considered the frontrunners in the battle for Spanish Under-21 international Isco, who is also being tracked by Madrid, while the club have already captured Jesus Navas and Fernandinho.
