Podolski to leave Bayern

If the Roque Santa Cruz move doesn't work, it wouldn't be a great surprise to see us move for Bayern Munich's Lukas Podolski in January. City bid roughly £14m for him in January 2008, but Jurgen Klinnsman (who was then still manager of Die Mannschaft) wanted him to be in place for his summer takeover. But opportunities have been limited this season, and so Podolski has now announced:
"I have made my mind up that I would like to leave the club in the winter. I have already told the management that I want to leave this winter."
Rafael Honigstein has reported that we tried for him on the Robinho day, and could go back in Janaury. So this is a genuine possibility.

I think this is far more likely than RSC coming.
