Manchester City will make an increased bid for John Terry this week in their relentless pursuit of the Chelsea and England captain.

Undeterred by talk of a complaint to the Premier League over their conduct, they are set to increase the pressure on Stamford Bridge officials to sell by adding to their rejected £32m offer.

Mark Hughes has challenged Terry publicly to take up the ambitious challenge at Eastlands – angering Chelsea – and the club’s super rich owners are thought to be prepared to pay as much as £40m.

The manager wants to pair Terry with Everton’s Joleon Lescott and will raise their offer for him too by bidding £15m, the figure rejected last week, and adding £5m-rated England Under-21 defender Nedum Onouha to the deal.

A third defender, thought to be Arsenal’s Kolo Toure, is also being targeted after Saturday’s 2-0 defeat to Orlando Pirates in the Vodacom Challenge in South Africa as City try to bring their defence up to the quality of a strike force which now includes £25m signing Emmanuel Adebayor.
