Man City boss Mancini ponders bid for Cassano

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is ready to firm up his interest in Sampdoria striker Antonio Cassano.

The Daily Mail says City’s Italian boss has drawn up a short-list of targets from Serie A and is a long-time admirer of Cassano, the former Roma and Real Madrid striker who remains his preferred option.

It was thought that Cassano would not be available until the summer, though a recent falling-out with Sampdoria coach Gigi del Neri has raised hopes that a deal could be done this month.
