Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Manchester City on Saturday, August 15.

The summer transfer window has now begun, with rumours and speculation continuing to swirl as Manchester City eye possible reinforcements.

The 2018-19 champions did not bring in a single player during the January transfer window, despite suffering a defensive shortage for much of the 2019-20 campaign, but they have already started their business for the summer.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings at the Etihad.

Saturday morning's Manchester City transfer talk news roundup:

Manchester United 'agree £10.8m deal for Filip Stevanovic'

Partizan teenager Filip Stevanovic is reportedly heading for Manchester United in a €12m (£10.8m) deal.

The 17-year-old enjoyed an impressive 2019-20 campaign for his Serbian club, scoring nine times and contributing three times in 35 appearances in all competitions.

Stevanovic played twice against United in the group stages of this season's Europa League and has previously been linked with Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea.

However, according to Republika, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have agreed a €12m (£10.8m) deal for the youngster, who could officially arrive in the summer of 2021.

The report claims that Stevanovic is likely to spend another 12 months on loan with Partizan before linking up with the Premier League side next summer.

Bayern Munich and Real Madrid have also previously been linked with a player who largely operated as a left-sided attacker during the 2019-20 season.

The Serbia Under-19 international has scored nine times and contributed four assists in 42 appearances for Savo Milosevic's side in all competitions.

Manchester City 'considering Alex Sandro move'

Manchester City are reportedly weighing up a move for Juventus defender Alex Sandro.

The Citizens have already brought in defensive reinforcements in the shape of Nathan Ake, but the club are also believed to be interested in signing a new left-back.

According to Tuttosport, Sandro has emerged as a potential target for Pep Guardiola's side, who have learned that Juve are open to selling the Brazil international this summer.

The report claims that the South American would be interested in a move to the Etihad Stadium, where he could battle Benjamin Mendy and Oleksandr Zinchenko for the left-back spot in the first XI.

The 29-year-old made 41 appearances for the Old Lady during the 2019-20 campaign, contributing one goal and four assists in the process.

Sandro's existing deal with the Serie A champions is due to run until June 2023.
