The former Chelsea man only joined City from Swansea in August 2012, moving to the Etihad Stadium in a deal worth £6.2million, but has struggled to establish himself in the first team.
Sinclair has started just three games this term and he has been linked with a potential return to Swansea, with the 24-year-old desperate for more action.
Mancini admits he can understand the frustration and says it is not the player’s fault, instead he feels Sinclair has been ‘unlucky’ and he hinted that he may need to move to resolve the situation.
The City boss said: “I think it is better if he can have another solution.
“If he stays here, maybe, everything can change but I can understand his frustration in this moment because he didn’t play a lot of games.”
Mancini concedes Sinclair is a ‘good player that deserves to play always’ but with City being linked with moves for the likes of Napoli’s Edinson Cavani, it appears his chances maybe be even more limited next Premier League season.
