Man City boss Mancini plans to trump AC Milan for Barcelona-owned Ibrahimovic

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini wants to bring AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Eastlands.

The Daily Star says Mancini wants AC Milan star Ibrahimovic to replace bad boy Mario Balotelli.

Mancini has lost patience with striker Balotelli and will axe him from Eastlands this summer unless there is a dramatic ­improvement in his behaviour.

And the ruthless Italian coach has made Ibrahimovic his No.1 target as he gets set to go on another multi-million pound spending spree.

Mancini is a huge fan of ­Ibrahimovic's and reckons he would be a huge hit in the Premier League.

The Swedish international is on a season-long loan at Milan from Barcelona and has scored 14 goals in 26 games for the Serie A giants.

Milan chiefs have an option to buy Ibrahimovic in a £26m deal, but Mancini is convinced he can outbid Milan and lure the former Juventus and Inter Milan star to City on a deal worth around £200,000 a week.
