Croatian starlet Mario Jelavic isn't giving up on a move to Manchester City.
The 19 year-old had extended trials at City earlier this season, but couldn't gain a UK work permit.
"Roberto Mancini told me that everything was resolved, we had an agreement and that I will stay with City. But then it became clear that there would be problems with the work permit. They say they will continue to watch me so I really hope that all is not dead yet," revealed Jelavic.
The youngster is now with Slaven Belupo and added: "City was an amazing experience and I hope one day to play for such a big club."
