Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini admits he admires Celtic midfielder Victor Wanyama.

The Blues reportedly scouted the 21-year-old during Celtic's defeat against Juventus, where Wanyama impressed despite being on the losing side.

When asked about the player at Friday's press conference Mancini said: “I saw him for the first time against Juventus, I never saw him before. But every time I go to see a game, the next day people say ‘Manchester City want to buy this player'.

When asked if he is of interest to City Mancini added: “In the moment, no. I think he is a good player.”
