Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is ready to bid for Atletico Madrid ace Radamel Falcao. The Italian saw the ­Colombian hotshot score his eighth goal of the La Liga season as Atletico Madrid beat Malaga 2-1 on Sunday, reports the Daily Mirror.

Manchester United and Chelsea have already been linked with the 26-year-old.

And City have joined the race just hours after Mario Balotelli stormed off after being subbed during the 3-0 win over Sunderland at the weekend.
