Roma's brilliant Brazilian winger Amantino Mancini is again in the sights of Manchester City.

The Sunday Mirror says Mancini is refusing to sign a new contract with the Italian club and Roma know that they must sell him in the summer or run the risk of losing the 27-year-old for nothing in 12 months.

Roma are looking to bank £15m for Mancini. But City boss Sven Goran Eriksson, who tried to land the international in January, will offer Roma half of their asking price because of the player's age.
