Mancini admits he tried to get Cavani to Man City

Former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has revealed that he tried hard to land the signature of Edinson Cavani during his time at the Etihad Stadium.

The Napoli striker remains a target of English clubs including Chelsea and City but Mancini admits he certainly was a transfer target during his Eastlands rein.

"When I was at City I often spoke about Cavani with the management. I often talked with the board about Edinson because he interested us a lot," he said.

"Cavani was somebody who could have been targeted. I don't know whether he is of interest in the club's new technical project."
