Manchester City are stepping up their interest in Sporting Lisbon centre half Daniel Carrico, 22, whom they have watched extensively in the last year.

Initial discussions have been held over a £12million move. City are also keen on Benfica's David Luiz, 23, but think he is over-priced at £25m and are wary of an auction with Chelsea.
