Roberto Mancini has made it vehemently clear that Edin Dzeko and Nigel de Jong will not be sold this summer.

The Manchester City pair have been linked with an Etihad Stadium departure but manager Mancini insists they are both required players.

Dzeko has attracted the interest of Juventus whilst de Jong has Inter Milan on his trail but the Italian boss has played down the potential departures.

"No, not at the moment," he said of potential bids for Dzeko.

On de Jong, he added: "I don't think Inter Milan want de Jong - de Jong stays here."
