Shakhtar Donetsk's Fernandinho, a world-class midfielder who dominated Chelsea this season, is distraught that his move to Manchester City could collapse due to the hard-nosed approach of Rinat Akhmetov, one of the richest men in the world (by John Cross and David McDonnell at The Mirror): "My dream is being threatened by my valuation."
Fernandinho's Twitter account hasn't been verified, but he's followed by compatriot Filipe Luís (one of the best left-backs in the world), whose Twitter account is verified.
Take a look at Fernandinho's recent tweets and the large majority of them have been about him moving to Manchester City, including re-tweeted articles by Bleacher Report's Christopher Atkins and Dan Talintyre.
So it's safe to assume that City are negotiating with Shakhtar for Fernandinho, but should the move collapse, Sevilla's Geoffrey Kondogbia is an excellent alternative.
He may be very raw, but he has the ceiling to become a premier defensive midfielder.
