The Premier League title may have been lost to Manchester United but Manchester City fans are already looking ahead to next season where they expect their team to challenge Sir Alex Ferguson’s side once again.
News reported by Mirror Football offers hope to the Manchester City fans in the Football Transfer Tavern that the club could be in a much stronger position as they suggest the Mancini’s side are winning the battle for Napoli ace Edinson Cavani.
The Citizens, orchestrated by City sporting director Txiki Begiristain, are ready to trigger the 26-year-old’s massive £52 million release clause in an attempt to beat both Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain to the 23-goal striker’s signature as they look to wrestle the title back off United.
City will offer the forward wages of around £250,000-a-week to match Wayne Rooney’s wages at United to be the highest paid player in the Premier League while also paying the British transfer record for the Uruguayan.
Roberto Mancini is known to be a huge fan of the excellent centre forward who he views as the difference between winning the Premier League again.
Is Cavani the ‘big’ summer signing that Manchester City will pull off this summer? Rate this rumour below.
