Mancini admits to Cavani interest

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has revealed that the club are interested in signing Edinson Cavani.

The Napoli forward has been constantly linked with a move away from the Partenopei in recent months, and the Italian Coach has admitted that the Premier League champions are keeping tabs on the 26-year-old.

“I like him, but all the world wants him,” Mancini told The Guardian. “There are big players. I don't know what can happen. Cavani plays for Napoli.

“Cavani, or [Atletico Madrid striker Radamel] Falcao, could work in England. They have experience. Both players are 26, 27.

“They are good enough to play in England.”

The San Paolo side's President Aurelio De Laurentiis today conceded that they would sell their star-forward if he wanted to leave.
