Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini says they're already planning for the summer market.

Mancini believes that regular meetings with director of football Txiki Begiristain, in charge of transfers, will see City succeed in the market before the start of next season.

He said: "We need to work now so it's not like last year.

"Now is the time we can close in on good players. I have had meetings with Txiki every week now about the summer.

"If you wait until May it can be impossible because all the good players are gone."
