Gago's agent Marcello Lombilla says City have been in touch and made it clear they are still in the hunt for the Argentinian midielder.

Lombilla said: “Manchester City will present a formal offer to Real Madrid on Monday and then the decision is up to Real Madrid and we are awaiting an answer.”

City boss Roberto Mancini has already had one �17m offer turned down but is still keen to strengthen his midfield before the window shuts.
