Mancini tells Man City chiefs he wants to keep Bellamy

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini wants to hang onto striker Craig Bellamy.

The News of the World says the fiery Welshman looked set for a summer exit from Eastlands after a series of fall-outs with Mancini last season.

He has attracted interest from both Tottenham and his home-town club Cardiff.

The Welsh side wanted to make him their marquee signing after the club was taken over by a Far East consortium.

But boss Mancini is insistent Bellamy can still play a major role in pushing City one step further next season.

Despite some fairly public bust-ups, the Italian has told the City hierarchy he holds Bellamy in the "highest regard" and is desperate to keep hold of him.
