Man City open Sampdoria talks for Pazzini

Manchester City have opened talks with Sampdoria for striker Giampaolo Pazzini.

The Sun says the Italians have already KO'd moves from Manchester United and Chelsea but mega-rich City will not take no for an answer. New boss Roberto Mancini has handed City's owners a list of targets - and 25-year-old Pazzini is on it.

Mancini faces a battle to get his man as the striker only joined Samp in January from Spain's Fiorentina.

But Pazzini has been a revelation since his switch to Serie A, where he has averaged a goal every two games.
