City close in on Thiago Neves?

One rumour growing in intensity recently concerns Brazilian midfielder Thiago Neves.

The fact that the Vincent Kompany deal was entirely unpredicted suggest that too much time is wasted digesting rumours. And the willingness of the papers to publish anything concerning City recently warrants further caution. But this rumours seems pretty strong.

A story showed up on (and other websites) on Friday, quoting Neves' representatives as saying: "The chances of an agreeement with Manchester City are great, but there are other teams interested".

Today Spanish paper Diario AS wrote that a deal is very likely: City have made a €12million (£9.6m) bid, and despite interest from Hamburg and Atletico Madrid, Neves is eager to play alongside Elano and Jô.

I'm currently drafting a post on Thiago Neves like the ones I did on and Diego Milito. There will be YouTube.
