Roberto Mancini is eager to commit his future to Manchester City.

Mancini's current three-and-a-half year deal expires in 2013 and the Blues boss wants to stay longer.

He has not yet opened talks with the club over a new deal and says it is not a priority right now.

"I would like to stay here for many years in the future," he said ahead of tomorrow's must-win Champions League game against Villarreal.

"I started to work here two years ago and I have worked hard to make a good team here.

"I would like to stay here for another three or four years because at the moment, Manchester City are one of the best clubs in the world.

"But it's not important my contract. I have this season plus one more.

"I am not talking to the club, but I don't have a problem because it's not important right now.

"My feeling here is good. We are all working well and the feeling is good."
