On Wednesday night, Manchester City produced one of the greatest European performances in their club history to give themselves a 2-1 away victory against Paris Saint-Germain. 

When PSG went into the second-half in Paris with a 1-0 lead, it looked rather bleak for City who could have gone into the break even further behind than they already were.

However, Pep Guardiola’s side emerged out of the changing rooms a completely different side, as vital away goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez put City in the driving seat ahead of the second leg at the Etihad Stadium.

They took the Parisians apart with free-flowing, attacking gusto which Mauricio Pochettino’s side simply had no answer to – the only minus on their otherwise A* performance was they did not score more.

Taking chances and finishing has been an achilles heel to City at times this season and numerous reports have stated the Sky Blues are in the market for a striker.

However, according to Italian sports news site calciomercato.com, Serie A league leaders Inter Milan have allegedly told City that their star man Romelu Lukaku is not for sale.

Lukaku cost Inter Milan £74 million.

The Belgian has been incredible for Antonio Conte’s side; spearheading their title charge with 21 goals (27 in all competitions) and eight assists in 32 Serie A appearances.

Lukaku has once again proved to be one of the top strikers in world football and appears to have put his frustrating spell at City’s fierce rivals Manchester United behind him.

It’s claimed that another one of his former clubs, Chelsea, who he joined as a teenager from Anderlecht at the beginning of the 2011/12 season, have also been interested in signing the 27-year old.

With Lukaku’s contract set to keep him at the San Siro until 2024, it will take a monumental sum of money to prise the Nerazzuri’s prized asset away from them.

According to the Daily Mail, Lukaku could cost up to £105 million, which would break the transfer record of both Manchester City, Chelsea and the Premier League.
