Manchester City are the latest team to throw their hat into the ring in the race to land Gary Cahill’s signature, according to reports in the Daily Mirror. Cahill has been a rock in the heart of the Trotters defence this season and with City’s financial prowess, Eastlands could well be his destination this summer.
Cahill was watched by Roberto Mancini and David Platt in Bolton’s 3-0 victory over West Ham on Saturday, where they were no doubt pleased with what they saw. It’s rumoured that Shaun Wright-Phillips and Dedryk Boyata are likely to be potential makeweights to tempt Coyle into sanctioning a deal for the £20 million rated defender.
City will face tough competition for the former Villa man’s services, as Arsenal, Manchester United, Tottenham and Liverpool are all believed to be weighing up bids.
Cahill is hot property and Owen Coyle is quoted as saying earlier this year “I have always said I am not one for standing in anyone’s way.”
“If it is the right thing for the player and the right thing for the football club, that is something as managers we have to look at.”
What ever happens this summer in the fight for Cahill it seems almost certain the England new boy won’t be at the Reebok next season.
