Here are your Manchester City evening headlines on Monday, September 26.

Brazil legend Ronaldinho has praised Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne hailing him as his favourite player for Belgium.

Since arriving from Wolfsburg, De Bruyne has moved from strength to strength at the Etihad Stadium. In August, the Belgian playmaker was nominated for UEFA men's player of the year however he was pipped to the prize by Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema.

In this campaign, the 31-year-old has continued to pull the strings for Pep Guardiola's men. De Bruyne has already notched eight assists for the Blues with Erling Haaland reaping the rewards of the Belgian's vision.

This form has led to praise from Ronaldinho who, when asked about his thoughts on the Belgian international team, singled out special praise for De Bruyne. Speaking to Voetbal Niuews, the 42-year-old said: "There are three Red Devils playing at AC Milan, my ex-club.

Manchester United transfer target Benjamin Sesko has revealed that he watches videos of Manchester City star Erling Haaland on YouTube.

Sesko was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford during the summer transfer window, but the 19-year-old eventually agreed to join RB Leipzig next year. United pushed hard for the transfer to be made, with football director John Murtough holding a meeting with Sesko's agent, Elvis Basanovic, in an attempt to broker a move.

The Slovenian scored 11 goals in 37 appearances across all competitions for Red Bull Salzburg last season. Sesko even scored against Liverpool in pre-season, a strike that went down very well with the United faithful.

The Slovenian forward was in action as his country beat Norway 2-1 at the weekend, with Sesko scoring the winner. After the match, the Salzburg star admitted that he is a big admirer of Norway and City star Erling Haaland.
