Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis has launched a fresh attack on Manchester City.

To progress from their Champions League group, City must beat Bayern Munich next week and hope that Napoli drop points to Villarreal.

Napoli president De Laurentiis launched another outspoken attack on City's Abu Dhabi owners by suggesting that they might try underhand tactics to influence the Spaniards, says the Daily Mail.

The Italian movie mogul has already branded City "money wasters" this season and accused Mansour of using the club as 'a play thing'.

On Wednesday, De Laurentiis went a step further, saying: "I can feel strange things going on surrounding the Villarreal game - princes and sheiks are getting agitated.

"To think about it would be evil but sometimes you can guess what is happening."
