Man City boss Mancini to bid for Napoli dazzler Lavezzi

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is chasing Napoli star Ezequiel Lavezzi.

Lavezzi, 26, is valued at £18million by his Italian club and the Daily Star Sundaysays City have already held talks about bringing him to Manchester.

As a young player in Argentina, he was hailed as "the new Diego Maradona" because of his skill and chunky build.

But Lavezzi responded to that by stating: "I am not the new Maradona - I am more like Tevez."

Lavezzi also interests Tottenham and has been linked with Champions League winners Barcelona. The Argentine international joined Napoli for £6m from San Lorenzo in his home country.
