Man City ready to outbid Man Utd for £30M Everton youngster Rodwell

Manchester City are determined to trump Manchester United for Everton midfielder Jack Rodwell.

The Daily Star Sunday says Everton don't want to cash in on midfielder Rodwell, 19, and have slapped an astonishing £30million price tag on his head.

And that's where mega-rich City could hijack any summer move, with Mancini a big Rodwell fan.

Mancini was hugely impressed by the kid in Everton's 2-0 victory at City last March.

But United are favourites, with Sir Alex Ferguson revealing that he wanted a player - ­believed to be Rodwell - in January, but the club wouldn't do business.

Everton boss David Moyes is adamant Rodwell won't leave Goodison for less than £30m.
