Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is set to go on a summer spending spree after identifying a host of potential targets in Serie A.
The cash rich Premier League club finished third in the Premier League last season but have been surprisingly quiet since the transfer window opened, with Mancini yet to officially welcome any new additions.
Nonetheless, City will not be staying quiet for much longer and with the backing of billionaire owner Sheikh Mansour, the Italian tactician will form a group capable of launching an assault on both the Premier League and Champions League titles.
The former Inter boss also confirmed that Carlos Tevez will be part of that challenge for silverware and also revealed that City are in the process of signing Partizan Belgrade defender Stefan Savic.
Mancini said : “Yes, of course Tevez will stay, he is a fantastic player,”.
“There was talk of an exchange with [Samuel] Eto’o but Inter did not want to sell. I would say a deal for Savic has been done, but [Samir] Nasri? No, not yet.”
Mancini added : “I like Ezequiel Lavezzi, Marek Hamsik and Edinson Cavani,”.
“I like Javier Pastore a little less. Then, when I think of Udinese, I can think of Pablo Armero and Mauricio Isla. And I must say Antonio Di Natale. It’s a pity that he is now getting on in years.”
