Tottenham star Moussa Sissoko has asked club bosses to OK his move to the City of Manchester Stadium.
The Newcastle midfielder is said to have his heart set on joining Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.
Although the move is expected to go through, negotiations are believed to have stalled on Tottenham's asking price for the player.
Manchester City's initial bid of €14 million was considered to be too low, according to club insiders.
