AS Roma midfielder David Pizarro is open to signing permanently with Manchester City.

Pizarro's agent Giuseppe Bozzo insists his client is giving his all to impress manager Roberto Mancini while he is also delighted myths over his fitness have been dispelled.

"It's very satisfying, even to respond to all the evil things which were said about his physical condition," Bozzo told tuttomercatoweb.

"He is contributing greatly to City in an attempt to satisfy Mancini, who strongly wanted him.

"His future? City have no right to buy him, however, if we sat down at a table I think we could easily find a solution.

"I can confirm Palermo's interest last summer, but Pizarro would only leave Roma for a club at the same or higher level than Roma.

"Juventus wanted him (in January) but the rumours and the doubts about him meant he went to England where he is finding space and trust."
