Man City boss Mancini admits Fernandinho admiration

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is tightlipped on a move for Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fernandinho.

Mancini downplayed the rumour when asked about it at his press conference to preview this weekend's Premier League trip to Swansea, saying he expected the summer market to be competitive.

He said: "I don't know this. We can talk about Fernandinho. Fernandinho is a good player but he plays for Shakhtar. I don't think there are a lot of good players (available) around the world. There are also four or five top teams who want to buy good players. It could be difficult."
