Former Arsenal and Barcelona defender Sylvinho is reported to be considering a move to Manchester City.
Sylvinho is a free agent following having left Barcelona at the end of last season.
City boss Mark Hughes is keen to bring in the experienced defender to provide cover for Wayne Bridge.
The player’s representative Hans Lamberz has confirmed there has been contact with City and the Brazilian is considering his options.
“There was contact with Manchester City a while ago and that has been renewed recently,” Lamberz told skysports.com.
“Sylvinho is a free agent and he is in no rush to sign anywhere as he can join a club outside the transfer window.
“Manchester City is obviously an interesting option with the talent there and Mark Hughes as manager.
“We are waiting for a decision from the directors of Manchester City and Sylvinho also has a decision to make.”
