Mancini: Reportedly spoke to Monaco earlier this year

Manchester City have declined to comment on a report that manager Roberto Mancini was involved in talks about becoming manager of Monaco last season.

On Thursday the Guardian reported on their website that Mancini spoke to the wealthy Ligue 2 outfit earlier this year with a view to joining them at the end of the last campaign.

It is claimed the Italian was offered a big-money contract and that the club expected him to sign.

All this, it is reported, occurred before Mancini led City to the Barclays Premier League title and subsequently signed a new five-year contract at the Etihad Stadium over the summer.

The 47-year-old has enjoyed considerable success at City since succeeding Mark Hughes in December 2009.

He oversaw the end of the club's 35-year trophy drought by guiding them to their FA Cup win in 2011 and then masterminded that first league crown in 44 years last season.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
