Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is confident they can close deals for Douglas Maicon and Matija Nastasic before tonight's deadline.

Inter Milan fullback Maicon and Fiorentina defender Nastasic are both waiting on fees to be agreed with City.

"We have another 10, 12 hours to close on these players," said Mancini.

"We need more time. I am confident. I think if we close these players, I think we improve our team. They come to play in a different championship, they need time. We are talking about one top player in Maicon, because he has experience Nastasic will be one of the top players for a long time."
