Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has confirmed he remains interested in Aston Villa midfielder James Milner.

Milner and Inter Milan striker Mario Balotelli, says Mancini, are top of his shopping list.

Mancini said: "When we want a player, other clubs ask much more than is normal.

"This is not good and it is not right. Until today, it is only City that are moving the market.

"We are interested in good players like Balotelli and Milner but we have time - we have a lot of different choices."
