City still keep tabs on Cavani

Manchester City's defensive coach Angelo Gregucci has reaffirmed the club's interest in Napoli striker Edinson Cavani and says it is too soon to discuss manager Roberto Mancini's future.

Edinson Cavani: Napoli striker continues to attract Manchester City's intere

Mancini has previously expressed an admiration for Cavani, who is regarded as one of the most potent forwards in world football.

Napoli have recently insisted it will cost £60million to persuade them to sell, although the Uruguay international said he is unsure where he will be playing next season.

Chelsea and Real Madrid are other clubs to have been linked with Cavani, and Gregucci says there is no 'exclusive' deal for City to sign the player.

"He is an important player and any club which wants to be better must look at players like him," Gregucci told Radio Crc.

"Mancini has expressed his appreciation for Cavani, but there is no 'exclusive' for City."

Reports have suggested that a deal for Cavani would prompt the summer departure of Edin Dzeko, but Gregucci would not be drawn on whether the Bosnian striker would be sold.

He added: "Dzeko is an important player too and, at the moment, it seems inappropriate to speak of the market."

City's faltering defence of their Premier League title has also raised questions over the future of Mancini at the Etihad Stadium.

Gregucci commented: "Mancini has a contract with City, we will see at the end of the season."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
