Premier League Transfer News: Mancini To Make Summer Bid For Gareth Bale

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has told reporters that he is interested in signing top rated winger Gareth Bale at the end of the season and was quick to dismiss rumours that suggest City want to sign Buffon.

‘He will be our strongest target – if Tottenham decide to put him on the market in the summer.

‘He will be possibly the only player who is not a striker that can make a difference [to our squad].’

‘He [Buffon] remains one of the best goalkeepers in the world but we’ve decided to choose Hart.

‘We have already sacrificed one of the top goalkeepers in Shay Given to make Hart our number one [so] I can categorically say we will never make an offer on Buffon.’

Harry Redknapp was quit to dismiss exit talks he said ‘I can’t see how it will happen,’ he told Sky Sports News.

‘Gareth wants to stay at Spurs and we want to keep him. If you’re a club with high hopes you don’t sell talented young players like Gareth Bale.

‘I hope he’ll stay with us for a long time yet.’

‘He [Buffon] remains one of the best goalkeepers in the world but we’ve decided to choose Hart.
