Mancini push for Ibrahimovic will bring wages trouble to Man City

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is determined to land AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

But his pursuit could mean City having to renegotiate the contracts of several of their top names before the start of the new season.

Tuttosport says Mancini has made it clear to Ibra's camp and Milan that he wants to sign the Swede and City are willing to cover his £10 million-a-year wages - before bonuses.

However, the stumbling block will come within Mancini's squad as the likes of Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero will demand parity with Ibra if he arrives as the club's new highest earner.
