Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini believes AS Roma are title contenders this season.

Mancini also has wrote off AC Milan and Inter Milan this term.

"I think the Scudetto will be between three sides in Juventus, Roma and Napoli," the former Inter tactician told Il Messaggero.

"Perhaps Juventus have that something extra because they can rely on a winning team that has been reinforced.

"However, Roma and Napoli are very close to the Bianconeri and I can see a beautiful battle."
