Man City ready to join Spurs and Man United in the race to sign £14 million Premier League midfielder

Manchester City are ready to join Tottenham and Manchester United in the race to sign Wigan Athletic midfielder Wilson Palacios. It was reported yesterday that the Honduras international was on the brink of joining Tottenham, however both City and United are preparing to hijack the deal.

Wigan boss Steve Bruce admitted yesterday that it would be very hard to hold onto the 23-year old. It is understood that Spurs have had a £14 million bid accepted for Palacios but Mark Hughes and Sir Alex Ferguson are both ready to match Wigan's valuation of the player, which will leave Palacios with a huge decision to make.

For me, Palacios has been different class this season. I totally agree with what Steve Bruce said yesterday. Bruce claimed that Palacios will be worth much more than £14 million in years to come and I feel whoever does eventually sign him will be getting great value for money. Personally, it wouldn't surprise me to see Palacios arrive at White Hart Lane in the coming days but no matter where he ends up, be sure to find out here on Football Corner.

You know how I feel about Palacios, but do you think the same? Well if you do, I highly reccomend you sign him for your team in this season's "You the Manager". He costs just £3 million which must be a bargain. So follow the link below to enter your team to be in with a chance of winning some terrific monthly and weekly prizes.
