Manchester City, which plays Inter Milan at M&T Bank Stadium on July 31, might be looking to add Landon Donovan, the United States' star during the World Cup, to its star-studded roster, according to Yahoo! Sports.

English Premier League team Manchester City, which sent a scout to watch Donovan during the World Cup, has "significant interest" in Donovan, Yahoo! Sports reported.

Club owner Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, a member of the ruling family of Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, has indicated that he's willing to spend millions to upgrade Manchester City. Since purchasing the team in 2008, Sheikh Mansour has increased the number of star players on Man City's roster.

Donovan currently plays for the Los Angeles Galaxy of Major League Soccer.

Tickets for the July 31 friendly between Man City and Inter Milan can be purchased by calling 410-547-SEAT or 410-261-RAVE.
