Man City close on Cerci deal

Manchester City are reportedly very close to signing Fiorentina winger Alessio Cerci for €7m.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Cerci had already been very close to an Eastlands move last summer, but opted for Fiorentina instead.

Now it's reported Man City are back in the hunt for Cerci and have even thrashed out a deal worth €7m.

It would be a €3m profit compared to the money Fiorentina paid to take him from Roma 12 months ago.

Although Cerci scored several crucial goals in the closing weeks of the campaign, he also launched a broadside at the Fiorentina supporters.

He claimed he was never welcomed in Florence and always jeered even when he did well because he is from Rome.

Cerci has been nicknamed ‘The Thierry Henry of Valmontono.'
