Mancini eyes two or three new signings

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has admitted that his side will sign two or three players this summer, and are eager to try and match Barcelona and Real Madrid in the Champions League.

The Etihad Stadium side won their first top-flight title since 1968 on Sunday, with two last-gasp goals sealing the Premier League crown on goal difference ahead of Manchester United.

Despite the star-studded squad at Mancini’s disposal, the Italian is keen to bring in a number of new players for next term.

“Barcelona and Real Madrid every year buy two or three players and spend a lot of money,” he told Sky Sports.

“I think for Manchester City it will be the same. We need to improve. We need to have the strength to play Champions League and Premier League.”

Attacking players such as Arsenal’s Robin van Persie and Lille playmaker Eden Hazard are thought to be high on Mancini’s wishlist, but the coach did not confirm the names of his summer targets.

Meanwhile, Mancini also stated that he has no problems with Carlos Tevez, and hinted that the Argentina international will stay with the club for next season.

“It’s not difficult to manage Tevez. He’s a good guy. We had a good relationship always.

“I don’t know why we had that situation in September but in the end he’s a good guy and a fantastic player,” he concluded.
