Victor Wanyama

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has played down talks that he is set to bid for Celtic midfielder Victor Wanyama at the end of the season.

The Kenyan has become a key player for the runaway Scottish Premier League leaders and has attracted plenty of attention from south of the border.

After a lacklustre few months, Manchester City appear to be handing back their Premier League title to Manchester United and now must focus on securing the FA Cup.

Wanyama has been scouted by the majority of top teams this season including Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur but the 21 year old has recently claimed he is happy at Celtic Park.

While Mancini knows he will have to strengthen in the summer in order to improve in both the Premier League and the Champions League, signing Wanyama is not currently an option despite the Italian boss praising his performance against Juventus in midweek.

“I saw him for the first time against Juventus, I never saw him before,” Mancini told Sky Sports.

“But every time I go to see a game, the next day people say ‘Manchester City  want to buy this player’.”

“At the moment, no (interest in signing the player).

“I think he is a good player.”
