Man City target Gago handed whopping 17m price tag by Real Madrid

Real Madrid have told Manchester City it will take £17million to prise Fernando Gago from the Bernabeu. Eastlands boss Roberto Mancini is keen to add another midfielder before the transfer window and recently confirmed interest in tough-tackling Argentina star Gago.
