AS Roma are making a move for Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini.

The Telegraph says Roma are prepared to take advantage of Mancini's uncertain future at Manchester City by offering a £4.5 million-a-year contract to bring the Italian back to Serie A this summer.

Mancini is less than 12 months into the five-year deal, worth £7.5 million a season, he signed after guiding City to the Premier League title last term.

But with City falling 12 points adrift of league leaders Manchester United after suffering a second successive group stage exit from the Champions League, Mancini's position is under growing threat.
