Mancini may last just six months at Man City

Roberto Mancini reportedly could be on his way from Manchester City at the end of the season.

The Sunday Times says Mancini, a three-time winner of Serie A when boss of Inter Milan, agreed a contract to take charge of City worth £3m net per year, one of the most lucrative deals ever handed to a British club manager.

The contract will run until 2013 though there is speculation — denied by Mancini’s camp — that it can be broken after six months, should the Italian fail to pilot City to a top four finish.
