Mancini is counting down the days until August.
"Excited? Yes I am," he told mcfc.co.uk. "Even before I see where we finish in the transfer market and which players come here, I think it will be a good season for us.
"I think we have a squad for success, and our supporters deserve this. Last year we did have a good season.
"We didn't get to the Champions League, but we still had a good season. Now it is time that some trophies came to this club."
"And Yaya has fantastic experience with Barcelona, where he won a lot of trophies.
"We need to have the players if we want to reduce the gap with the other teams. We need to bring in players with good quality."
