Manchester City have been linked with just about every decent player on the planet in recent months, so it's hard to know which gossip to go with.
Fernando Torres, Steven Gerrard, Ronaldo, Kaka, Pele, Eusabio, Bobby Charlton - been there, done that. And who knows, one of those might just happen.

So who's next? Well, according to reports, James Milner and Edin Dzeko are top of the Roberto Mancini wanted list.
Some sources are suggesting City have already put in a bid for Wolfsburg striker Dzeko, who is valued at around £34 million.
City are also being linked with moves for Real Madrid pair Gonzalo Higuain and Fernando Gago - who could be surplus to requirements when Jose Mourinho gets things organised at the Bernabeu.
