Mancini talks up Serie A based players

Alexis Sanchez of Udinese and Javier Pastore of Palermo are just two big names from Italy who have been linked with moves to City.

Mancini said: “I like Ezequiel Lavezzi, Marek Hamsik and Edinson Cavani. I like Javier Pastore a little less. Then, when I think of Udinese, I can think of Pablo Armero and Mauricio Isla. And I must say Antonio Di Natale. It’s a pity that he is now getting on in years.”
