Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has played down talk of a possible summer move to French side Monaco.
The 48-year-old has struggled to recreate the highs of last season with the Manchester club after falling 15 points behind league leaders Manchester United and dropping out of the Champions League in the group stages.
Rumours of a move away from the Etihad have continued to grow throughout the campaign with Ligue 2 side Monaco now emerging as a possible destination.
The former Inter manager has been quick to play down speculation over his future and has reaffirmed his stance and loyalty to the club.
“Monaco is one of the best teams in the French Second Division and they have a good manager. I’ll stay here for a long time – like Yaya,” said Mancini, making a reference to Yaya Toure’s long-term future.
“Yaya is one of the best players in the world and he will stay here for another three, four, five years, I don’t know. A long time.”
