Pedro Obiang: Sampdoria midfielder flattered by Manchester City link

According to reports in Italy, the Spanish midfielder is a summer target for the current Premier League champions.

And the Spain Under 21 international of Equatoguinean descent claims it is good to be linked with a switch to England even if he is happy at Sampdoria.

"I am being flattered by reports in the Italian press but nothing is done yet," the 20-year-old told Sky Sports.

"I have a contract until 2016 and I do not think they want to sell me.

"I am settled here and I like the life but to be honest it is good to be linked with clubs going places like City where there are big stars and a very good coach who is a legend here at my present club."

City boss Roberto Mancini played more than 500 games for Sampdoria in a 15-year stay at the Genoa club.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
